Uninstall Programs Using their Uninstall Shortcuts:

Most desktop applications, when installed, create at least an Uninstall shortcut. This is generally found in the application’s folder in the Start Menu (in Windows Vista, Windows 7, etc.):

uninstall5-191x300

… or in the Apps view, that’s accessible from the Start screen (in Windows 8.x).

Uninstall Programs Using their Uninstall.exe

Many programs have an executable file named uninstall.exe. This file is found in the installation folder of that application:

uninstall6-300x246

Run it and follow the steps required to uninstall the program.
