Windows Phone 7 – Uninstalling an app


I don’t think I’ve seen this anywhere, so I’ve decided to share how easy it is to uninstall an application in Windows Phone 7.

Though simpler, its a bit different from Windows Mobile, so Wimo users might have some difficulty getting to it:

Just go to the applications list, tap and hold the app you wish to uninstall and the from the menu tap “uninstall”.

From the same menu you can also pin the program to the start screen, and there is another option only available on Marketplace apps, that will allow the user to rate it and review it.

  1. Hi there, was wondering if you could help.
    I installed an app called call blocking, then like most apps found it to be rubish so deleted it, problem is it added its self to the settings menu, and I can’t get rid of it. The app is no longer on the marketplace, either. Is there any way of deleting it from my phone?
    I look forward to hearing from you.
    Many thanks

  2. I’ve had my windows phone for a week and haven’t been able to figure out how to uninstall apps and have been looking all over for how to do it and this is the only one I’ve found that works thanks for the help! 🙂
