    When you install an app, including the ones that come by default in Windows 10, it takes up storage space on your computer or mobile device. If space becomes limited or you just don’t use an app anymore, you can uninstall it to free up storage space.

    You can uninstall Windows Store Applications from the Start menu by navigating to the application, right-clicking on the application, and selecting uninstall. After uninstallation is complete, Windows will notify you.

    Other older programs may be uninstalled by visiting the Control Panel, clicking on “Programs” and “Uninstall Program”. Follow the directions on the screen to complete this process.
