Did you accidentally uninstall a program that you may need later? If yes, then don't worry. Here, in this article you will learn how to recover uninstalled programs on Windows 10.
To recover uninstalled programs, you can either use Windows System Restore or a third party tool. We are going to read about both the methods in detail below.

The System Restore option takes your computer back in time. Such a point of time is known as System Restore point. Restore points are created when one installs Windows updates, drivers, and a new app.
When you follow the method of Windows System restore to recover the uninstalled programs, you may also lose the programs that you recently installed on your system. You may have to go through further loss if you don't enable the System Protection option. Therefore, the best choice for you is to use a third-party tool to recover the lost programs.
A hard drive recovery software is what you need as a third-party tool. This will enable you to retrieve all the uninstalled programs by just a few clicks.
Mentioned below are some of the features of this recovery software.
Step 1: Launch your third party recovery tool. Select the drive where you uninstalled the programs and then select Scan.
Step 2: Wait for the scan process to get completed.
Step 3: Search for and select the program installation and setup files that you wish to retrieve. After that, select a location to save the files.
Note: One thing that you need to make sure is that the erased data has not been overwritten by newly entered content. One must meet this condition in order to successfully recover the lost data. Therefore, you must not use the hard drive, which contains the data, and recover the data as quickly as possible.
A restore point also gets created when a user creates it manually. None of your personal files will get affected by this system restore process but it will delete all the programs that were installed after the restore point was generated.
In case you don't see any system restore points, then that may be because the System Protection is disabled. To check it, you need to go to the Control Panel and then look for Recovery and then click on "Recovery". After that, "Configure System Restore". After that, ensure that the option of Turn on System Protection is chosen.
Both the solutions mentioned above will help you recover uninstalled programs. Carry out the one that best fits all your needs. In case System Protection is turned off, then it is recommended to use a third party tool for recovery purpose. If System Protection is turned on, then go with the System Restore method.
