Where are my Windows 8 games?

I'm no longer able to find any of the games that were installed on Windows 8.  After someone else tried to remove malware from my computer I cannot find the installed games.  I see the app on the tiles that leads me to the games I can play online and/or download but when clicking on that nothing happens either.

In Windows 7 and prior days I remember an option in Add/Remove programs to add/remove Windows components.  How do I repeat this process?  Thanks in advance.

You have to find the app you want to uninstall and right click on it and choose Uninstall
