Remove unwanted Apps from Windows 10

Windows 10 has many new and interesting features. Previous versions of Windows required the Control Panel to uninstall a desktop program. You can now use the Start menu or the settings app to uninstall unnecessary Apps. Whenever we want to remove unnecessary apps installed in our system, we move to the Control Panel but Windows 10 provides an alternative for removing apps directly from the Apps and features tab in the system section.
The following is the procedure to show how to remove unnecessary apps from Windows 10.
There are the following two ways to remove unnecessary apps:

  1. With the Start Menu
  2. With Setting App

With the Start Menu
The simplest way to remove apps is from the Start Screen. Press the Windows key on your keyboard or click the icon on the system's screen. At the Start Screen, go to the app that you want to remove and click the right button of your mouse or track pad and look at the lower-right corner, the third option will be uninstall, click on it. Some apps can't be removed (like Notepad), so you might not see the uninstall option.
