What you need to know
- You'll soon be able to uninstall PWAs using the Settings app, Control Panel, and Start Menu.
- Currently, uninstalling PWAs requires you to use the PWA's menu or settings in your browser.
- The new feature is already available in the developer version of Microsoft Edge.
Users will soon be able to uninstall PWAs using the Settings app, Start Menu, and the Control Panel (via Windows Latest). Microsoft submitted a commit to the Chromium project that adds an 'Uninstall Registry entry" into the Windows registry. This means that you can uninstall any PWA the same way that you'd uninstall an app.
The previous way to uninstall PWAs that were installed through a browser was to use an individual PWA's settings menu or uninstall the PWA through your browser's settings.
Uninstalling a PWA by right-clicking on it from the Start Menu, using the Settings app, or using the Control Panel is a more natural way of removing something from your PC and makes PWAs installed through browsers feel more like native apps.
The feature is already implemented on the beta versions of Microsoft Edge, and the goal is to have the same feature roll out to all Chromium browsers.
