    The easiest method to uninstall an app in Windows 10 is to right click it in Start Menu, and select Uninstall. However, sometimes this option is not available. In screenshot XBox Game Bar app, with no uninstall option:

    Most apps can be uninstalled in Settings, installed software also in Programs and Features (tutorial). This tutorial will show you an alternative method, to uninstall any app or application in Windows 10 even when uninstall option is missing in other methods, using Windows Admin Center (WAC). Simply select the apps to uninstall, click Remove, and all selected apps, all selected installed software will be uninstalled.

     Uninstall apps with WAC

    1 Install and setup Windows Admin Center (tutorial).

    2 Open your computer in WAC, select Apps & Features on navigation pane (#1 in screenshot), select the apps to uninstall (#2, you can select both Store and Win32 apps), and finally click / tap Remove (#3):

    4 WAC shows a notification when selected apps have been uninstalled:

    That's it! You use WAC to uninstall apps when no other method works. You can uninstall multiple Store and Win32 apps with one click, not needing to wait that one app has been uninstalled before uninstalling the next one.
