When you visit the Microsoft store and download apps (applications) a record of that download is recorded by Windows. The record is there is case you uninstall the app and, at a later time, wish to re-install it.

While this is a useful feature, not every user wants a complete history of every single app they have installed on their PC. If you happen to be one of those users then there is a simple way of deleting app installation history.

To remove app installation history, proceed as follows:

1. Press Win Key + I to open the Settings screen.
