There are many reasons why we want to remove applications from our operating system (OS). The main one is to get more free space in the storage, but it is also important if we like to maintain a good internal organization , and we have too many tools that we do not really use. Thus, the process to uninstall programs in Windows 11 is quite simple . It can be done in up to three different ways, although it is interesting to know that not all applications can be removed from the OS with these methods, since some are integrated -such as the Microsoft Edge browser- and require more complex procedures..
