Sometimes it is being dissatisfied with the software, and sometimes it is that you no longer need it.

Here is our list of the most effective uninstalling methods.

2. Through the start menu.

Maybe, you didn’t suspect that every time you click ‘Start,’ the menu sets you 1 step away from your goal. Just click this button, find an app you want to delete in All Apps, and use the right mouse button to remove the program.

3. In the control panel.

Fresh versions of Windows 10 have a control panel where all programs and features are managed. The process of removal here is identical to the previous ones.

4. With IObit Uninstaller.

This tool is already not a part of the Windows operating system. This is a professional tool letting you see all apps, including those not often used and leftover pieces from deleted programs to keep your computer in order. It’s great to use for stubborn programs or plug-ins that cluttered your hard drive.

The same deletion we have here as well – pick the app, right-click it and choose ‘Uninstall.’
