Uninstall app add-ons

It can be annoying for an app to install an add-on without you wanting it (looking at you Photos).
Here is how to uninstall add-ons of the Photos app.

  • In the Start menu, click on settings > Apps
  • Find the Photos app (you might use the search field)
  • Click on the Advanced options (If you do not see it just click once on the app to expand all options)
  • Scroll down to the bottom to find “App add-ons & downloadable content”
  • Here you can choose to uninstall the add-ons
