It seems the option to uninstall disabled plugins is missing.
The option is present for any active plugins.
The following screenshots show this.

Typically I would disable a plugin before deciding to remove it.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Disabled a plugin
  2. Click the cog and there is no uninstall option.
  3. Click the cog for an active plugin and there is an uninstall option.

Additional info

  • Craft version: Craft Pro 3.1.29
  • PHP version: 7.2.18
  • Database driver & version: MySQL 5.5.5

This is expected, because we don’t want to ever executing a plugin’s code if it is disabled. And plugins are responsible for uninstalling themselves to a degree, and we couldn’t do that without executing its code.
