Windows 10 offers several built-in ways to delete unwanted software, but several third-party programs can also rid your hard drive of unneeded applications. Let’s look at your options.

If there are several applications on your Windows 10 PC that you no longer use, you aren’t stuck with them. Get rid of them to free up disk space and unclutter your Start menu.

Windows 10 includes an uninstaller option available through the Start menu, Settings screen, and buried within Control Panel. You can quickly and cleanly remove a Windows 10 Universal app through the uninstall feature in the Start menu and in Settings, though not with the Control Panel applet.

However, if you try to remove a full desktop application using Windows’ built-in options, the process often leaves behind leftover folders, files, and Registry entries. That’s why you may want to use a third-party uninstaller, which can fully wipe out entire applications and leave no traces behind. Let’s go over your options.

Uninstall From the Start Menu
Uninstall From the Start Menu
You can uninstall a program from the Windows 10 Start menu. Click the Start button and look for a program you wish to remove, either in the All Apps list on the left or in the tiled section on the right. Right-click the program. If it can be removed this way, you’ll see an option for Uninstall in the pop-up menu. Click it, confirm you want to uninstall it, and it’s gone.
Uninstall in App Settings

You can also go to Settings > Apps > Apps & features to more easily view all the programs you can uninstall. This screen shows you both Windows Universal and standard desktop applications, so you should find every program installed on your PC here. Scroll down the list to locate the program you wish to remove, then click it and select Uninstall.

Uninstall Through Control Panel
If you prefer using Control Panel, that option is still available in the latest edition of Windows 10. Click the Start button and scroll down to the Windows System folder. Click the folder, then select the Control Panel shortcut. You can also search “Control Panel” in the search bar.
