How to uninstall Windows Subsystem for Android in Windows 11

Microsoft has been expanding the capabilities of the Windows operating system and in a surprising yet welcome move, the Redmond-based technology giant added support for natively running the Android applications in devices powered by the Windows 11 operating system.

It’s not just a marketing gimmick as the company has made sure that the Android apps in the system can interact the same way UWP apps work.

While it is a welcome feature, not everyone wants to run Android applications on their computer and if you are among those, then you don’t need the Windows Subsystem for Android on your device. If you are looking for ways to get rid of it, then here is a step-by-step guide for the same.
