How to Recover Uninstalled Programs on Windows 10?

I heard that many computer users uninstalling programs in Windows 10 in order to free up disk space. This is somewhat awkward, right? But it's happening all the time, people with little computer knowledge take this way to solve low disk issue, even though they don't feel like removing those programs they used for a long time.

What's more, Windows 10 updates somehow delete users' programs, too. It's said that some updates will automatically uninstall incompatible programs, and people have nowhere to find the programs, which makes them very confused.

In fact, there are many ways teaching people how to increase C drive space in Windows 10, either use Disk Management tool or third-party partition manager software. It's not necessary, and most noticeably uninstalling your installed programs or deleting program files won't help regain considerable disk space you need.

Don't waste your time downloading and reinstalling the programs you just uninstalled, or perhaps the programs that Windows 10 update unknowingly deleted. Here are two solutions you can apply to recover uninstalled programs as well as program files in Windows 10 without any hassle.

Solution 1. Restore Uninstalled Programs in Windows 10 Using System Restore

Go back to an old system point before the programs were uninstalled, and you can quickly get back the programs without reinstalling.

Note: This behavior can salvage the uninstalled programs, at the same time, any new programs you installed after the system point will be gone. Do it only if you think it's worth.

Step 1. In Search Windows box in Windows 10, type control panel and open it.

Step 2. Click on "Recovery" and then "Open System Restore".

Step 3. Select "Next" and then click the "Show more restore points" check box to view a list of previous restore points.

Step 4. Select a restore point before the program you want to recover was uninstalled and then select "Scan for affected programs" to see what other programs would be affected if you perform the restore.

Step 5. Select "Close" and then select "Next" if you agree with the changes that the system restore will make to your system.

Step 6. Save and close any programs that are open and then select "Finish."

Step 7. Select "Yes" to initialize the system restore process and recover the uninstalled program. A message stating that the system restore completed successfully is displayed after a reboot to confirm that the operation was a success.
