You might be happy to know that the Wise Program Uninstaller tool has just received an update to version 1.97 and it now supports the removal of Windows 10 Universal apps. The best part about this product is the fact that it’s really easy to use and it has a user-friendly interface. Now you can see the list of apps together with the desktop apps.
If you want to remove one of them, just select it and click on the Safe Uninstall button. However, the main disadvantage here is the fact that you can’t filter the apps by using another criteria than the app name. You can’t list all the apps in a group, for example, and you can’t select more apps if you want to remove several of them, which might prove to be not so handy.
The Wise Program Uninstaller is based on standard techniques of removing apps, so it cannot work for those which are deeply embedded. For instance, you will see Cortana on the list, but if you click on Safe Uninstall, you will simply see a message saying that the operation has failed.
All in all, there’s nothing here that is too complicated or new, so you might get this features from programs you already use. CCleaner, for instance, also has this feature, if you click on Tools and choose Uninstall you will see the list of apps and desktop applications which can be removed with just a couple of clicks.
Even so, the Wise Program Uninstaller is a really good tool that lets you delete individual apps. Moreover, it’s portable and requires no other complicated steps. It might even be useful if you are already using another program or if you just want to uninstall some basic apps from your computer. Thankfully, it’s also free for Windows XP and other newer versions.
