    To uninstall app in windows 10, you go to settings, apps, apps/features, select the app you want to remove and click uninstall. Or, what I like to do is; I use Revo uninstaller and select the windows app tab and then select what app I wont to remove and then uninstall.

    How did this come to be on your system? I am asking because if there exists a portable version of this game, and that's what you have been using, it will not show up because it is not installed (in the literal sense, which involves the creation of registry entries).

    Portable programs are removed simply by deleting the folder where they live. Also, where does Windows Search or the Everything search by voidtools.com report Minecraft as residing on your machine?

    If I remember correctly, windows 10 did have Minecraft as a game app that came with windows. I'm almost positive about that. If that is the case.....like I said those MS store apps will not show up in program and features. None of those app will....ever.

    Open up MS store and click on those 3 dots and select library and see if it listed in there.
