    If you don't like the start screen app and want to remove it from the screen, just right click on it and click on Unpin from start option in the bottom bar
    You can completely uninstall that for that go to Add and Remove program from Control panel and search app name, right cluck on it and click Uninstall

    hi,

    to uninstall from the starting screen you need to select the App first, then right click to get an option Uninstall select it and its done.

    from the control panel you can do the same.

    if you fail to do it from either point it means you dont have the priviledge to uninstall any program, and you need to have Administrative Authority.

    so log in as an Administrator and do the same task of uninstalling and possibly you will be successfull.

    Thanks.
