Uninstalling Programs on Windows

Posted April 1st, 2015 at 10:15 am.

To uninstall a program on a Windows computer, use the Programs and Features menu. If you’re unfamiliar with uninstalling programs, see the instructions below!

  1. Open the Control Panel (via the Start menu or by searching). If your Control Panel displays in Category mode, click Uninstall a program in the bottom left under the Programs category. If your Control Panel displays Icons, click Programs and Features, listed alphabetically among the other icons.
  2. This will bring you to a window with a list of all installed programs. In this list, locate the program you would like to uninstall. The programs are sorted by Name as default; you can also click on the Installed On column header to short by installation date.
  3. Once you have selected the program to uninstall, click the Uninstall option directly above the top of the list.
