    Uninstalling Windows apps


    Hello guys,
    how can I uninstall all these apps I don't need? The tutorial Apps - Uninstall in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums is not working. As the folder of the app actually remains.

    I haven't had any problems with uninstalling the Apps I don't want simply by right clicking on them in the All Apps menu and then choosing "uninstall".

    Well even if I follow it, what's the point if the folder and all the files remain?

    Hi Guys,
    The links below are very much the same as "METHOD TWO" of your link. Maybe it is explained better or differently.

    YOU ARE ALLOWED to UNINSTALL Microsoft Default Apps.

    All you need is a couple of links.

    But first I want to give EVERYONE my FREE ADVICE. Many other people are having problems with these apps.
    I firmly believe Microsoft will soon release an UPDATE that fixes these problems.
    If you can live with the apps the way they are give it a couple of weeks.

    If you do not feel comfortable with this procedure then do not try it.
    Hopefully you will create a restore point before starting and have already created a Windows 10 Rescue Disc and Recovery USB flash drive. You need these things before attempting any changes to your computer.
