    Apps remain in the apps folder after uninstall

    Hello, and thank you for being included in the forum.
    I am trying to learn Windows 8. I have weeded out a few apps from the Start screen by right clicking and then clicking Uninstall. The apps in question disappeared from the Start screen, however, they remain in the apps folder. How do I complete a total uninstall?

    I'm having this issue too, how do I remove these apps?
