Uninstall programs in Windows 11

As for the newest Windows 11, this question is especially relevant, since most of the users did not install the system again, but updated from Windows 10 according to the preliminary assessment program, transferring all the trash that had accumulated over several years from the old to the new Windows! In my experience, even experienced users always have ancient and long-unused software, so I seem to always delete old programs, but I still found two dozen unnecessary applications. This problem can be solved by simply removing programs that we no longer need. In this case, we will not only increase the speed of the computer, but also free up much-needed disk space. Let’s take a look at a few of the most commonly used application cleanup methods in Windows 11.
