Uninstalr 2.0

Introducing Uninstalr: Easy to use and very accurate software uninstaller for Windows. It can uninstall multiple apps at the same time and we think it’s pretty cool. Developed with expertise by Macecraft Software - the minds behind jv16 PowerTools.

  • Supports unattended uninstallation of apps.
  • Supports monitoring of new software installations.
  • Also detects portable apps and previously uninstalled software leftovers.
  • Shows all the data added to your system by installed software on a file by file basis.
  • Shows all the data it will remove before starting the uninstallation.
  • Filter and search the list of installed software.
  • According to our benchmark, Uninstalr is the most accurate software uninstaller by leaving the least amount of leftovers when uninstalling apps.
  • Supports detection and uninstallation of Microsoft Store, Steam, Big Fish Game System, Chocolatey, NuGet and Ninite installed software.
  • Supports Windows Dark Mode.

  • Uninstalr is freeware, lightweight and easy to use. No bells and whistles, no nonsense.

What's new in Uninstalr 2.0:

  • New feature: Added improved searching, filtering and sorting options to the installed software list.
  • New feature: You can now choose the leftover scanning mode. For example, to use Uninstalr to only batch uninstall software by automating the running of each app's own uninstaller, but without any additional leftover data cleaning.
  • New feature: You can now choose the installed software analysis depth.
  • New feature: You can now skip the main analysis to quickly see the main program window, for example, if you just want to use the new software installation monitor.
  • New feature: Uninstalr can now detect and uninstall apps.
  • New feature: Uninstalr will now attempt to create a System Restore Point before the uninstallation begins.
  • New feature: Uninstalr can now detect and fix incorrect information from the Windows installed apps list, such as incorrect installed app sizes.


  • Improvement: Greatly improved the accuracy of installed software, portable apps and leftover detection.
  • Improvement: The installed software scan is now faster on most systems. In systems with a lot of software, the scan can still be fairly slow.
  • Improvement: The program is now much better in detecting cases when user attempts to uninstall something that might be dangerous. In such case, an additional confirmation message is shown to the user.
  • Improvement: Starting to type anywhere within the main results view will now add these key presses to the search input box. Previously, the search input box had to be in focus for this to work.
  • Improvement: You can now start uninstallation by selecting an app from the list and hitting the DEL key from your keyboard.
  • Improvement: Pressing ESC can now be used to close elements within the program, for example, ESC will now clear any active search filter. If you want to close the program itself, a Shift+ESC press is required. This is to avoid accidentally closing the program while working with it without using mouse.
  • Improvement: The rows of the selected apps are now highlighted to make it more clear what is selected.
  • Improvement: The Show All Data view now also includes a search feature, allowing you to quickly see whether the list contains any paths matching your search term.
  • Improvement: Hitting the Home key from the keyboard now takes you back to the list of installed software.
  • Improvement: Starting the uninstallation will now better communicate to the user that the system will be restarted during the process, if that option is checked.


  • Fix: In some rare cases, the software could get confused with paths of software with similar names and also list such paths to be removed as well.
  • Fix: When uninstalling software, Uninstalr can fail to automatically close browser popup if you are using Edge browser.
  • Fix: The default sort order of the result list was quite random. Now the default sort is based on the software name, and it's also easy for the user to view the current sorting method and change it.
  • Fix: The Don't Show Builtin Windows apps filter could sometimes hide third party apps if their names sounded similar to builtin Windows apps. For example, if you have an app called Notepadify installed, it could have been incorrectly classified as a Builtin Windows app, because it sounds like Notepad.
  • Fix: Right Click menu's Settings option was visible also when the Settings view is already open.
  • Fix: Maximizing the program window could cause it to go over the Windows task bar.
  • Fix: The installation date can be different than what is shown in Windows Settings > Installed Apps.

Known issues

  • The default installed software scan is slow in cases of a lot of installed software. For example, if you have over 200 installed software, the default installed software scan is probably going to take a few minutes. In such case, you can change the scan setting from the Settings view for the program to start faster.
  • The program doesn't fully support screen readers.
