Uninstalling an app installed via windows 10 store


 

Well I have used ccleaner to uninstall things, I assume that add remove programs will work to.

However even if you kill it you will have to click see more in store then downloads then there is a drop down box for owned or downloaded or installed, select owned, then you need to hide that app else it will just install it again.

Ask this since, trying to find something like a list of installed software in the windows store interface, using NVDA seems unavailable?


And, the apps installed via this path don't show up under add or remove programs from the control panel?


Stay well, and, TIA

Probably in settings > apps > apps and features

From the list of installed apps select the one to uninstall

then hit enter to expand

then tab to uninstall button

then hit enter

Thanks, Joseph.


I will archive your reply, and, did figure out/find the context menu means.

Hi,
There are two ways. The fastest way is opening Start, search for the app you're trying to uninstall, then instead of pressing Enter to open it, press Applications key to open context menu and choose Uninstall (and confirm if requested). The other way is pressing Windows+X, then F to open Settings/Apps/Apps and Features. Then tab around until you arrive at a list of apps. Navigate through the list, locate the app, press Enter tr select, then Tab to go to Uninstall and select it (confirm if requested).
Cheers,
Joseph

Ok, and, just after sent this, figured out a way to handle it - start menu, programs, and looked the apps sub-menu, and, under there found the item was wanting to uninstall, triggered the context menu on it, and, there was a menu item to uninstall it.


Sorry.


Stay well
