open software center, there you find the installed software option, click any software you want to uninstall and remove it.

  • open dash (press windows key of the keyboard) and type software center. – Shohanur Rahaman Jan 6 '16 at 16:18
  • I can open software center, but can't find the program I want to uninstall in the installed list – velut luna Jan 6 '16 at 16:26
  • had you installed the program from software center ? – Shohanur Rahaman Jan 6 '16 at 16:27
  • you can try this sudo apt-get remove <program name here> – Shohanur Rahaman Jan 6 '16 at 16:29

Open a console and type the following:

sudo apt-get remove $PackageName

Please note that doing so will NOT remove dependency to prevent breaking your system.
