Although the control panel is still available in Windows 10, there is a new way of uninstalling programs and apps from your PC. Here's how to uninstall programs and apps in Windows 10.

The new structure and layout of Windows 10 – namely the return of the Start menu - shows that Microsoft has moved away from the long tradition that is the control panel. You can still use it if you want but there are much easier ways of getting rid of unwanted software.

How to uninstall programs and apps in Windows 10

Step One

Select the Start button.

Step Two

Select Settings.

Step Three

Choose Apps & features.

Step Four

Find the piece of software that you want to uninstall in the list. Click on it, select Uninstall and follow the instructions.

Step Five (alternative method)

There's also an alternative because if you open the Start menu and select All Apps at the bottom you can then find the software you want to get rid of, right click on it and click Uninstall. If you have a tile in the Start menu, you can also simply right click on that and choose Uninstall.
