Uninstalr 2.2

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.

Key Features

  • Batch uninstall many apps at the same time.
  • 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.
  • Supports Windows 11, 10, 8 and 7.

  • Has a single executable file portable version and a normal setup version.
  • Uninstalr is freeware, lightweight and easy to use. No bells and whistles, no nonsense.

Uninstalr 2.2 changelog:

  • Improvement: Greatly improved the program’s ability to detect portable apps.
  • Improvement: The scan and analysis of installed apps is now a lot faster, especially in systems with a lot of installed apps. For example, in one test systems with over 500 installed apps, the previous version 2.1 takes 167 seconds to analyze the installed apps and the new version 2.2 takes only 125 seconds.
  • Improvement: Added an option to alter the way how multiple apps can be selected from the list. The alternative method works based on Ctrl+Click.
  • Improvement: Added an option to disable all additional warnings and confirmations about uninstalling apps. If you know what you are doing, you no longer need to see any of those warning messages.
  • Improvement: Comes with updated Dutch, French, German and Swedish translations. If you want to improve the translation of the program in your language, please download this file:, open the translation file of your language with any text editor such as Notepad++, locate the [custom_strings_uninstaller] section and edit any poorly translated texts from there. After you are done, you can send the updated file to me via TranslationsSupport and it will be included to the next released version of the program.
  • Improvement: The program is now better in detecting the installed version of apps.
  • Improvement: The program can now find the icon of installed apps better.
  • Improvement: The installed apps list now show better tooltips with more information.
  • Improvement: Overall improvements to the accuracy of detecting data from the installed apps.


  • Fix: The program can fail to detect the installation of some programs, for example PopTrayU.
  • Fix: If attempting to uninstall a Microsoft app, such as Office, the additional warning message would list every other Microsoft app from the system and warned you that uninstalling one could affect the rest.
  • Fix: Fixed a few typos from the English user interface.
  • Fix: Changing the sorting of the installed apps list sometimes failed to work, especially if you tried to sort it by changing the sort setting very rapidly.
  • Fix: The bottom of the Windows desktop can show a partially visible minimized window during uninstalling some software.
  • Fix: Changing the UI font size from Settings didn’t update the UI while the setting was adjusted, and changing the setting but then closing the settings view without saving still applied the new font setting.

Known issues

  • Bug: Settings view doesn't look great in different app window sizes and screen resolutions, sometimes some of the texts are cut off or overlapping.
  • The program is not fully compatible with screen reader software.
  • Bug: The program can crash with "Out of Memory" or "Access Violation" error message on some specific systems. Usually in systems that have a lot of installed apps. I have had about ten people reporting this issue, but so far I have not been able to reproduce it and therefore fixing it has been challenging. If you are experiencing this issue and you are willing to run a special debug version that would generate a debug log for me to analyze the problem, please contact me via
