How to avoid uninstalling applications in Windows 10 from the Start menu

The security in Windows 10 covers a wide range of options ranging from setting passwords to access more drastic measures or application settings. Just one of the most common fears is that someone accidentally or does not uninstall any of the system applications , whether they are native to Windows 10 or installed by us..

 

We know well that all applications can be accessed from the Start menu, which is why TechnoWikis has prepared this tutorial, in order to explain how to prevent a user from uninstalling applications there.
