Windows 10 App Remover

Description:

Allows you to easily remove apps from Windows 10 - with this program you can hide all system apps and then remove all other apps in one step either for current user, all users or the local machine (so they don't then reinstall automatically for new users). This was written to speed up the process of removing unwanted apps when setting up new computers as they often come with lots of additional bloatware that is not required

Requirements:

.NET v4.5.2
