Uninstalling Applications in Windows 8

By Ibrahim Ersoy on Oct 14, 2012
There are many ways,but the most easiest one is this!

You're new to Windows 8 and you want to dig into it more?

This article will tell you about how an application can be uninstalled in the most easiest way

Normally you'd go to the Control Panel:


Select Programs->Uninstall a program and there choose your application:


and Uninstall it!

Normally you'd do it.

But if i told you there's a much more easy approach to this?

With the new UI set for Windows 8,you can now select an application and uninstall it by tapping(for touch screens) on it or right click on it.

This new uninstallation saves us time more than general approach

Just right click on an application and choose Uninstall in the Application Bar:


If its a Windows 8 Store Application then you will see this for confirmation:


By clicking Uninstall button,Windows Store Application will be uninstalled immediately.

But if its not a Windows Store style application,likemost an Application that runs in Classic Mode.Then it will display Uninstallation Window from Control Panel as all Classic Mode apps are meant to be uninstalled.
