I just installed a new, fresh Ubuntu 23.10. I want to delete all games, but I can't find list of installed software, so that I can delete unnecessary programs.

There is no installed software button in the App Center.

    This is just a comment... I never use the "software" GUI in Ubuntu to install, update, or remove any software; it is just a mess, very misleading, and a buggy piece of app. You should instead use apt and snap from command line.

    Tick "Show system apps", and upload a picture. If you still don't see them, try installing gnome-software, and delete them from it instead.

  • @FedKad notice this is tagged app-centre - this is a rewrite to solve exactly those problems - something very important if we want Ubuntu to start being used by less technically savvy users!

You can install and update your software and show a list of installed software in the Ubuntu Software app. To install Ubuntu Software in all currently supported versions of Ubuntu open the terminal and type:

sudo apt install gnome-software
