Finally, the Windows 10 users can uninstall the unwanted apps. As we all know, Windows 10 comes with many pre-installed apps that many users might not like to have. So now, Microsoft has introduced the ability to uninstall the apps that come pre-installed in its latest build of Windows 10. The latest Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14936 lets users uninstall pre-installed apps like Mail, Calendar, Groove Music, Maps, Calculator etc.
The uninstall option was not working against these pre-loaded apps in the older versions. Now, you can simply open the Settings app and visit the Apps and Features section where you can easily uninstall these apps that come pre-loaded.
The Ghacks was the first to notice the feature and it claims that the feature is expected to be released commercially next year. As of now, many apps are still difficult to remove such as Camera, Alarm & Clock, Cortana etc. The uninstall option does not work for these apps. We are not yet aware of the reason for the distinction.
Moreover, you need to be a part of the Windows Insider Program if you want to use the build as the preview version is available for Insider members only. So, if you wish to be a part of the Insider Program you can register here.
Microsoft announced last month, that Windows 10 is running on 400 million active devices as on September 26. Back in May, Microsoft had announced Windows 10 was on 300 million active devices. On the other hand, tipster Core has also hinted on Twitter that the upcoming build that is expected to release this week or next week, will have many features.
Stay tuned for more updates.
