FIX: How to Remove Candy Crush Saga from Windows 10

Like many other applications, Candy Crush Saga also came preinstalled in Windows 10 due to its mass popularity. It can be a delight for those who play the game or may try playing it. But for those who do not like crushing candies that much, they will probably also not like Candy Crush Saga just sitting there on their computer and seeing its shortcuts everywhere.

As it is one of the core apps of Windows 10, you cannot just simply remove it from Add/Remove Features in the Control Panel. Although, there is an easier way to uninstall Candy Crush by Pressing the Windows key to bring up Start (Search) menu and then type Candy Crush Saga.
