Hi,

Thank you for posting in the Microsoft Community Forum.

From your description I understand that you want to know how to uninstall app in Windows 8.

To understand the issue better, please answer the following questions:

 

1.    What is the make and model number of your computer?

2.    Which app are you trying to uninstall?

 

 

Right click or long press on the App, Click on Uninstall.

If you want to reinstall the app:

a.       Press Windows Key + F, click on store.

b.      Search for the app, click on install.

 

Hope the above information is helpful. If you have any question get back to us, we are happy to help you.

Thanks.

How would I do this with just a keyboard and mouse?

 

I've tried right-clicking... it does nothing.

The standard left-click puts a checkmark on the app, and brings up the options at the bottom of the screen as 'Clear,' 'Install,' and 'View details'

Hi PRC,

The steps you described are correct but if you have an app installed, you should have the option to 'uninstall' not 'install'. You can check the installed apps on your machine by selecting the Store app, right-click on an empty space, and selecting Your apps.

Also, which app are you trying to uninstall?

Dena

You may have the Windows 8 RT version as I do.  It took me some time to figure out how to uninstall apps but it is different than the regular Windows 8 for Tablets.

 

1. Hit your Windows key or simply go back to your Windows start.

2. Locate the app in question, and simply flick down on it.

3. You will notice a bar at the bottom should have appeared.

4. Hit Uninstall and you are done!

 

Hope this helps.

 

I also found this video helpful and perhaps you will to if you are more of a visual learner as I am. :-)
