Software recommendation: easily uninstall and restore Win10 pre-installed applications

There are many pre-installed apps in Windows 10 that people will not use. Therefore, some people use various methods to uninstall these apps for the sake of simplicity or less resource consumption. This publication has introduced the method of uninstalling built-in apps with commands. However, after uninstalling them, if you need them again someday, installing them is not so easy because not all of these built-in apps can be found in the app store, and restoring them requires complex command lines, which you can’t restore without knowing them. Now, we use 10AppsManager tool to easily uninstall the apps we no longer need; in case we need them again someday, we can also use the recovery method provided by the tool to quickly restore them.

To uninstall the built-in apps with PowerShell commands, see our article “Too bloated for Windows 10? Did you uninstall these useless components” in the article “One-click uninstallation of redundant apps”.

First of all, after running 10AppsManager software, you can see the list of all the apps already installed on your system after the app management interface appears. The software reminds users in red font at the top of the status bar to do a good job of creating a system restore point before uninstalling the application, in case of unpredictable recovery (Figure 1).


You can know how to uninstall the app by the prompt message in the status bar. If you want to uninstall one of the apps, click on the app icon (left-click or right-click to uninstall the app in the list) and the software will prompt you whether to uninstall the app or not, click “Yes” to confirm and start uninstalling. As an extreme option, if you no longer need all the apps in your system (i.e., you no longer intend to use the Metro apps feature), just click the Remove All trash icon in the bottom right corner of the list to uninstall them all at once (Figure 2).


After the system built-in application uninstallation, if you need to reinstall the application, click the Reinstall button in the software interface, the software starts to automatically restore the installation of the original application, after the installation is completed, a prompt box is displayed to show the successful installation (Figure 3).
