After being fed up with the menu This led me to a very useful and beautifully named program called Bulk Crap Uninstaller, which does the job. Much better than Microsoft’s own uninstaller utility.
BCU itself does not need to be installed. Just download the portable version, extract the zip file anywhere on your computer. and run the included program file After walking through the setup wizard which I recommend leaving almost all settings as is. You will be taken to the main list of all your installed programs. In the left sidebar, click “Select using checkboxes.” Check out all programs you want to remove.
A quick warning: Since Bulk Crap Uninstaller is much more comprehensive than the default Windows uninstaller, it may search for certain drivers and other software. that you may not know But it is important for running other apps. Only remove the program if you are sure it is not needed.

Once you have selected the program you want to delete. you can choose “Uninstall” or “Uninstall silently” from the top menu bar. Pick the latter and Bulk Crap Uninstaller will try to remove everything without annoying uninstall prompts.
by any means The app will process the removal in an orderly fashion. So you don’t have overwhelming pop-ups. by default The app will also create a system restore point. So you can go back to how you were. If you accidentally delete an important program, at the end you’ll also have the option to delete the associated registry file.
BCU is not the only program of its kind. But I appreciate that it’s free open source and doesn’t have its own bloatware, although some software removal tools can do more harm than good. But this tool lives up to its name.
