If an app is on the start screen, I can right click it and choose "Uninstall" to uninstall it.

But if I have previously chosen "Unpin from Start" for an app, so that the app is no longer on the start screen, then how can I uninstall it?

Press Windows key, then search for the name of the app. When it pops up, you can right click on it and press Uninstall from the bar below (just as if it was on the start screen).

Press Windows key + 'X' , then press 'F'. This will bring up 'Programs and Features' in the 'Control Panel'.

Then, same as in previous Windows, select any app you want to uninstall and click 'Uninstall/Change'.

Start + X ? Then F. What is that supposed to do? Start+X gives me mobility centre... – ppumkin Nov 6 '12 at 22:34
@ppumkin I have edited to clarify. – Kang Nov 6 '12 at 22:36
Windows+X should give you the "power menu" with Power Tools and Admin Tools. @Kang - The Programs and Features list doesn't include the "modern ui" app store apps however - at least not on Windows RT. – Zhaph - Ben Duguid Nov 6 '12 at 23:44
