Does anyone know how to clear out deleted Windows Store apps from the computer? When you go into the Windows Store and right click and choose 'your apps' the selection 'apps not istalled on this pc' still shows apps that I have deleted. I only installed on one device (unless they auto-install to the xbox360 also?). I cannot see how to clear out previously deleted apps. See attached pic to see what I am talking about.

Thanks!

Bummer! But thanks for the link :) Maybe future updates will change that behavior. It's nice to download apps to try them out but once I decide I don't want them, I don't always want to see them there. Oh well.

Hi wmgreenjr,

Seems like you're not the only one, I too encountered the same issue on Windows 8 Store and consider it as a drawback...
I don't know about you... but when something is clumsy and can't even install after several tries, I'd rather flush it for good from a list and prevent any further installation conflict... From what I read this option of deleting uninstalled application is not available [at least for now] and as a result we're stucked with them.
It seems the only approach left for now is to create another account...hmmmm really not the best option...
Anyyyyyyway looks like we'll have to live with it for a while...
