How to Delete Windows 8 Apps

I this post I take a look at how to delete apps that you have added from the Windows 8 store. In Windows 8 Microsoft made things a lot easier when it comes to installing apps with the new App Store.



Just as adding apps is an easy task now so is deleting them and totally removing them from you computer. When removing an app it is all done from the new Windows start screen and not add remove programs as in older versions of Windows, although any full programs that you have installed (any software other than apps from the store) are still removed as before.
So, let's look at how we remove an app.
  1. From the Windows 8 start screen find the app you are wanting to uninstall.
  2. Right click on the app tile.
  3. Right clicking will add a check mark to the bottom right corner of the app and open up a menu at the bottom of the your computer screen.
  4. From the menu at the bottom of your screen left click Uninstall.
  5. You will then be shown a warning dialog box regarding uninstalling the app.
  6. Left click uninstall.
The app will now be uninstalled, if you change your mind at the last minute and decide to keep the app just simple right click the app tile again. If you would like the app back at a later date just head to the App Store and redownload it.
