Easily uninstall a program

Tech Tricks

Tech TricksIt’s easy enough to install a computer program – download it, or load it from a disc or USB stick, and then get it running.


But some users don’t actually know how to uninstall a program if it’s causing them grief. There’s an easy way to change that.

First, go to the Control Panel, and then select Programs and Features. There, you’ll see a list of all the programs you have installed.

To uninstall one, simply right-click and choose “uninstall”, which will take you through the entire procedure.

Just make sure the programs you are uninstalling won’t cause you trouble if they aren’t there. Always double check.
