To remove a managed application
  1. Open Group Policy Software Installation.

  2. In the results pane, right-click the application that you want to remove, point to All Tasks, and then click Remove.

  3. In the Remove Software dialog box, click one of the following removal methods:

    • To specify that the application should be removed the next time a user logs on or restarts the computer, click Immediately uninstall the software from users and computers.

    • To specify that users can continue to use the application if they have already installed it, click Allow users to continue to use the software, but prevent new installations. If users have removed the application or if they have never installed it, they will not be able to install it.

Additional considerations

  • To complete this procedure, you must have Edit setting permission to edit a GPO. By default, members of the Domain Administrators security group, the Enterprise Administrators security group, or the Group Policy Creator Owners security group have Edit setting permission to edit a GPO.
