There are multiple built-in ways to uninstall programs as well as apps in Windows 10. For example, you can use Command Prompt, access the Settings app to remove some app or software, etc. However, when you have to uninstall Microsoft Store apps and programs in bulk, then such built-in options aren’t helpful. Even many other third-party tools are not able to do that. Therefore, you need to look for some specific option to bulk uninstall programs and apps. One of such options is IObit Uninstaller software.
The free and latest version of IObit Uninstaller is good enough to batch remove installed software/applications as well as Microsoft Store apps from your Windows 10 PC. The best part is you can also use it to uninstall pre-installed apps or system apps in just a few mouse clicks. The list of features is pretty good. Let’s check them.
IObit Uninstaller software for Windows 10
