Windows 10, like its predecessor before it, comes jam-packed with lots of apps and programs that nobody really cares about. For example, Windows 10 comes with Skype Preview – a customized version of the popular video conferencing, messenger and calling app now being developed by Microsoft. But if you wanted to use Skype, you can easily get it from the official Skype website. They do not have to advertise this app and pre-install it in Windows to everyone’s annoyance.
So if you do not like Skype Preview in your Windows 10 PC, then you can easily remove this app using a number of methods:
Method 1. Using Windows 10 Start Menu
This is perhaps the easiest way to get rid of any app in Windows 10. You simply have to press the Win key on your keyboard to open the Start menu. When the Start menu shows up, scroll down to find the Skype Preview app, right-click on it and choose Uninstall from there. You will be asked for confirmation and after that it will be completely removed from your PC.
Method 2. Using Windows 10 Settings
- Press the Win key on your keyboard to open the Start menu and click on the cogwheel icon to open the Settings window.
- In the Settings window, click on the Display category.
- Under the Display category, select Apps and Features from the left side list.
- Scroll down to find and click on the Skype Preview app. Choose to Uninstall the app and follow on-screen instructions.
So these are two easiest methods of getting rid of Skype Preview app from any Windows 10 PC. And if you want to use Skype, then you can download it from their official website and install on your PC later. These same instructions can be used to remove any other app or program from your PC whether they came pre-installed or even if you yourself have installed them before.
