    Install of a legacy program failed. Incompletely installed. It is present on the hard drive yet not on the App list and therefore not available to uninstall. How do I uninstall it?

    :)

  2. unable to uninstall an app

    I had downloaded modern combat 5 game in my phone from the store... But it's not listed in the app list OR it's not there in the start menu..

    When I go to store it's showing that the game is installed and gives me an option to view..but when I tap view the store exits..

    so I am unable to uninstall it from the phone though it has consumed memory in my device..

    Nokia Lumia 730. Any suggestions???

  3. Unable to uninstall an app

    First of all, I haven't tried any troubleshoot steps.

    I tried to uninstall it at control panel.

    Now, from the list of programmes at the control panel, the app has disappeared (I don't know if it has uninstalled) but the folder of the app is still on the start menu app list.

    How do I delete the folder from the list of apps on the start menu.

    Thank you.

    Unable to uninstall an app on Windows 10

    Hello dayhiker4k,

    First, I went ahead and moved this thread to the appropriate category, so no need to worry about that. Thanks for letting us know about this.

    Regarding your concern, I have listed below the most basic steps on how to uninstall a program on Windows 10 via settings. Try it out and see if it helps:

    • On the Start menu, select Settings.
    • Select Apps.
    • Select the program, and then select Uninstall. Some apps built into Windows can't be uninstalled.
    • Follow the instructions on the screen.

    If the above step won't work, I suggest that you check with Webroot's support website for steps on how to completely uninstall their programs. Some anti-virus apps require certain permissions, or may have have different steps to perform in order to completely
    take it out of the system.

    If you're still having trouble uninstalling the app, the last resort that I can share to you is to uninstall it using
    Command Prompt. Follow the steps provided by Ramesh.Kumar from
    this link and let us know the outcome.

    We'll keep an eye out to your response.
