Installing add-ons from the Windows store is easy and sometimes requires no action. Users who are not technically competent users may have difficulty uninstalling them because they are not displayed in the Control Panel or in the Apps category of the settings.

However, there is an easy way to uninstall it. Let’s take the example of the add-on for the Windows 10 Photos application.

The official name of the Photos App extension is Photos.DLC.Main (DLC seems to mean downloadable content) and can be found in the Settings section.

To access it, open the Settings > Applications and Features > Advanced Options link under the application. Application add-ons do not appear in the application list.

Locate the application entry you want to uninstall, then click the link Advanced Options. All add-ons installed for the selected application are displayed in the Add-Ons area of the application and Downloadable Content.

Click the add-on you want to uninstall and select Uninstall. When prompted to confirm, click the Uninstall button again.

If there are no add-ons installed for the application, you will see ‘There are no add-ons installed for this application’ message‘.

You can also do it for any Windows Store application on your Windows 10 PC.

That’s it!
