    Unwanted Programs Question?.

    Is it okay to uninstall Groove Music, Skype. Houzz etc from the Programs list in Windows 10?. I never use any of them and essentially view them as bloatware. I unchecked them all from the various lists in Settings during install of Win10 but find them installed anyway. No wonder microsoft gets a bad name and pushes people like me towards Linux.

    Yes you can remove those. Just right click and choose uninstall. There are some apps that can't be uninstalled.

    If you're not sure about others, just ask.
