    Can I uninstall default Metro apps like Health&Fitness?


    Is it possible to uninstall preinstalled Metro apps, like Health & Fitness or Music?

    Or at least, is it possible to block them out for a particular account without using the built-in parental control?

    Thanks in advance!

    Don't know about blocking them but uninstall is possible via right click menu.

    It's OK, there's a slight change between 8 and 8.1, update 1 in the process.
