How to uninstall an app in Windows 8

I keep getting emails from people asking this again and again. 

The funny thing is, I thought I wrote an article on C# Corner but any way, here it is again.

First, find the app you want to remove. You can use WIN+Q and type your app name into the Search TextBox and find your app Icon. 

Alternatively, you can scroll through the apps installed on your machine.
