As the image shows, the remove button is missing from Gpu Preferences for Apps list (System->Display->Graphics). Does anyone know how to fix it?
I use a laptop with secondary GPU (Nvidia RTX2060).

Same here, configure it to let Windows decide which is default from Options.

Hi
i tried to do that as well....
I have a suspicision that removal is unavailable because of "hello" its part of MS security facial recognition.
In the end i just dissabled it in device manager

You could try removing it with Revo Uninstaller or App Buster by O&O

Im afraid it isn't there on revo to uninstall it. I havent tried app buster but suppose i could.

Out of curiosity, If you wanna get rid of it from the list then im guessing you mean uninstall? Why?

Ok so tried it and tested with Revo, Uninstalled like any other program xD. No signs of it on the pc, Searched for it to see if there was any dodgy icons etc but seems to be all good.

Some apps which come with default OS installation cannot be easily removed because they weren't designed this way and were supposed to work as a part of OS. They still can be uninstalled by 3rd party tools, but either not completely (some remnant files will exist) or it will result in non-working links in some parts of OS, mainly in Settings. For example, OneDrive was a part of Windows 8.1 and its uninstallation was not possible by design, Settings has the direct links to it. Contrary, in Windows 10 and 11 OneDrive can be uninstalled without any harm to OS. Camera app may be similarly incorporated in OS since Windows 8.1, and if you uninstall it, some individual or cumulative OS updates may fail as a result.

Anyway, I suggest to make a system backup before such uninstallations.

I've never made a disk imagine In my 15 years of pc's. How much does that hurt you're head out of curiosity?😂 but yeah the camera alone hasn't cause issues. Either in settings or jist normal. Can't say the same about other windows apps as I'm gonna say it varies.

If you use App buster you can make it unavailable and if all is still ok then you can go ahead and delete it
