How To Sort And Search Apps To Uninstall In Windows 10

Uninstalling apps from Windows 10 includes sort and search filters through which you can first list the installed apps based on different criteria before removing them. These criteria include the size of the apps and where and when they are installed.

Here is how to use these filters:

Open Windows settings (Win key + I) and choose Apps.

The default filter shows apps installed on the system partition but you can change it to all the drives or cycle through any different partitions if any.
