How to Uninstall or Repair a Program in Windows 10

While using Windows 10 or any other operating system, you install several programs on daily basis. At times, these programs are not properly installed because of poor Internet connection or any other interruptions or you might install a wrong program by mistake and want to get rid of it.

Sometimes you see your system’s apps start misbehaving due to missing or corrupt files.
