How to Recover Uninstalled Programs on Windows 11?
You have two methods to recover uninstalled programs on Windows 11/10 computers and they are:
- Using System Restore
- Using Third-Party Data Recovery Software
Now, let’s see these in detail.
1] Using System Restore
You can easily recover uninstalled applications and deleted/lost files using system restore. System Restore is a Windows feature that allows users to revert their device to a previous state. It’s designed to help troubleshoot issues caused by recent changes, such as installing new software or updates, uninstalling programs, and deleting files without affecting personal files like documents, photos, or emails.
This post will show you how you can perform a system restore. However, you can only perform a system restore if you’ve created a restore point earlier or if a system-created one exists.
2] Using Third-Party Data Recovery Software
You can recover uninstalled programs on Windows 11 using a third-party data recovery tool. Use these tools cautiously, as they might not always be reliable and could potentially cause issues. Stellar, Easus, MiniTool, Wondershare, etc. offer some good free versions, so see if they help.
