  3. remove apps from start menu windows 10 build 14393.105

    Hello,

    The quickest way to uninstall apps in Windows 10 is to find the app you want to delete in the start menu app list and then to right click. A pop-up menu should appear with a couple of options. One of the options should be "Uninstall" (Not all apps have the
    option to uninstall due to the fact that they are necessary for windows to run smoothly, but most are uninstall-able). Once "Uninstall" is clicked the app should be uninstalled automatically with no further involvement needed.

    When older apps (non universal or metro apps) are uninstalled however a Control Panel window will appear with a list of all installed (non-universal and metro apps) apps and you will need to find the app in the list that you wish to uninstall, select the
    app, right click and select "Uninstall".

    Please post to us with more information to help you better.
