There are a few way to handle this via UI.

Also there is a particular application from another community which is excellent at managing app re-installations/removals.

2. See http://www.thewindowsclub.com/10appsmanager-windows-10

3. Along the way of this tutorial, using the start menu is done in similar manner. its been mentioned in comments above by @Regedit32 ;) however like tutorial its limited to non stock apps.

4. Via powershell also possible

1. Open Powershell as admin
2. List all apps sorted by name ;)
Code:
Get-AppxPackage | select name | sort name
3. Uninstall app
Code:
Get-AppxPackage -Name 'insert.name.of.package' | Remove-AppxPackage
4. Re-install apps
Code:
Get-AppxPackage -allusers insert.packagename.here | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

And the list goes on and on since there are many many ways to go about this.
