Simple tool to uninstall default Windows 10 apps but fails in restoring some apps.

Are you a Windows 10 user? Are you juggling with the preinstalled or built-I Windows Store apps on your Windows 10 PC? If yes, this is the right post for you. In this post, we will learn about 10AppsManager, which is software which lets you uninstall and reinstall the built-in Windows Store apps. Windows 10 PC comes with many default apps and most of them are barely used by a regular PC user. In my case, there are many apps which I hardly use and the list includes- Money, 3D Builder, Phone Companion and many more. While you can uninstall or reinstall the apps manually too, but it is a bit time taking and a bit techy, 10AppsManager can do this with just a single click.

How to use 10Apps Manager

It is a very simple tool and requires to tech knowledge. Just download the zip file, extract the contents and run 10AppsManager.exe as an administrator on your Windows 10 PC.

The main overview of the freeware says all. You just need to select the app you want to uninstall. You will get a confirmation pop-up before the program uninstalls the app.

While the freeware also lets you reinstall the app, it is not as simple as uninstalling. You need to run a command from PowerShell to reinstall the applications on your PC which may not be a simple task for everyone, not for a new PC user at least.

The only glitch here is that you cannot just select the apps you want to reinstall; it restores the majority of default apps removed from your PC. The discmailer over the program says that it may fail to restore some of the deleted apps and thus it is important to get the backup of your data and create a system restore point before you uninstall any app.

It is a lightweight tool and requires no installation which means you do not need to separate out the contents of the program folder. The program is developed by Lavish Thakkar for www.thewindowsclub.com and he strongly recommends creating a system restore point before you remove any app from your PC.
