How do you delete apps in windows 8

Just purchased HP Pavilion 15 with windows 8.  Several apps I don't want or need show up.  How do I eliminate them or hide them?

How do you delete apps in windows 8

Find the app you wish to delete and right click on it. After you click, the app will have a small tick in the corner.

Installed apps should have a 'tile' on the Start Screen but if the app isn't there then use Search in the Charms Bar to find it.

 

Once you've selected the app you wish to delete, an options bar will appear at the bottom of the screen. Choose the Uninstall option and then click the second Uninstall button when you are prompted.

 

You've now deleted the app by uninstalling it from your PC
