Uninstalling Windows 8 Apps

If you have an app that you no longer use, you can free up some disk space and reduce clutter on the Start screen by uninstalling that app. Here’s how it works:

  1. Use the Start screen or the Apps screen to locate the Windows 8 app that you want to uninstall. To display the Apps screen, switch to the Start screen, right-click or swipe up from the bottom edge, and then tap All Apps.
  2. Right-click or swipe down on the app tile. Windows 8 displays the app bar.
  3. Click Uninstall. Windows 8 asks you to confirm.
  4. Click Uninstall. Windows 8 removes the app.
