Uninstall Windows Programs in Bulk: CleanMyPC Multi Uninstaller


uninstall Windows programs in bulk

Uninstalling software in Windows is easy when we are talking about one program - you just find it in the list of Apps and Features and click Uninstall. But when it comes to uninstalling several programs, the process gets more complicated and time-consuming. You can’t remove Windows programs in bulk, so you’ve got to uninstall each program one by one.

Why you are unable to uninstall multiple programs simultaneously in Windows

Windows doesn’t allow to uninstall multiple programs simultaneously to avoid conflicts between each program’s uninstallation settings and files. Windows default installer system was created to be unified for all applications, and it prefers accuracy over speed. If uninstallers could be launched together with no additional monitoring they could cause serious system crashes.

That’s why you can manually launch uninstallation for one program at a time. To make the process faster and more effective, you need a special tool to uninstall programs.

Why it is necessary to remove software leftovers

First of all, you uninstall programs completely only when you delete all the files and folders related to them. Otherwise, they will be clutter on your PC without you even knowing it.

You are in control of the uninstallation process, so if you don’t want to remove program remnants you may cancel the leftover cleanup, or uncheck some items that you want to keep. However, it is highly recommended to complete this step to perform a clean uninstall.
