    Removing Windows 8 Apps Permanently

    I understand how to uninstall a Windows 8 app from my computer but if I go into the "Your apps" option of the Windows 8 Store the app still appears as something I "own" (though, in this case, it happens to be free). What can I do to remove it permanently from my account? I do not want it showing up as an app that I own and is not yet installed on my computer.

    Win 7 / Win 8

    I agree. There's a free app I tried and wasn't what I expected. I just want to disown it forever and have it not show up in any lists that say it belongs to me.
