Silverlight out-of-browser apps: Remove
Removing a Silverlight out-of-browser app is as easy as installing it was previously. From within the app, just right-click and choose “Remove this application…”.
Just so you don’t wipe away apps by accident, Silverlight will ask you to confirm, and when you do, the app is uninstalled and its binaries are scavenged from the offline application cache.
Data persisted by the app into local data store (Isolated Storage) is not removed. It is still consumable by the in-browser version of the app.
On Mac OS X, dragging the app bundle into the Trash can is another way to remove the app.
In line with our guiding principles which involve keeping the consumer end user firmly in control, keeping it simple and staying out of the way, the Remove experience does not allow the app to programmatically delay, defer or prevent its own uninstall.
