How to remotely uninstall third party applications from a Windows device


Open Endpoint Manager > Click 'Devices' > 'Device List' > 'Device Management' > click the name of a Windows device > 'Software Inventory'

  • Endpoint Manager lets you view the list all applications installed on a managed Windows device

  • These also include applications installed on locations other than their default locations, because the communication client periodically scans the locations including 'C:\Program Files\' and 'C:\Users\{user}\AppData\' folder. The client and sends the details of the applications to Endpoint Manager. 

  • You can also uninstall 3rd party applications from the device

Note: You can only remove applications which are supported by EM. See the full list of EM supported 3rd party applications here.
