How to uninstall a program

Tech TrickIt may seem like a simple task – but very few computer users know how to actually uninstall a program correctly. And leaving unnecessary programs on your machine can lead to serious clogging.

 

If you’re using Windows, then you need to open the Start Menu, then go to Control Panel. After that, double-click on “Programs and Features”.

 

There you should see a list of every program that is installed on your machine.

 

Find the one you want to uninstall, and then right-click on it. The only option should be “uninstall”. Press this button, and then each program will have its own individual wizard that should pop up and tell you what to do.

 

Don’t just delete files from the C: drive and hope everything will be okay. This is the proper way to uninstall a program.
