Best answer

iTunes is by default the default player on macOS systems and as thousands of users know it is a platform that offers us numerous functions linked to Apple ID, the best thing of all is that we can use iTunes in Windows operating systems and continue synchronizing all the elements between one system and the other.
iTunes for Windows 10 is available at the following link:

 

 iTunes

 

When we install iTunes in Windows 10 , in the background some additional plugins are installed that have the task of searching for updates for iTunes such as the Apple Software Update and Bonjour. In this case, Bonjour is in charge of detecting services that are published on the local network, but it applies specifically for macOS. In Windows 10 this doesn't have any work, but Bonjour activates a service called mdnsresponder.exe which can use system resources in something that is not necessary..

 

If for some reason you want to uninstall iTunes from Windows 10 , TechnoWikis will explain the process to do it completely.

Note
This process applies to iTunes applications that have been downloaded from Apple directly but not from the Windows store, iTunes from the Windows 10 store does not add Bonjour. To uninstall from the Store we will see the next chapter.

 

 


2. Uninstall iTunes completely if it has been downloaded from Store


In the new versions installed from the Microsoft Store, uninstallation is easier since it is not necessary to delete associated files and folders as the previous method. For this we will do the following:

 

Step 1
