Uninstalling unused or obsolete programs from your computer is as simple as a couple of mouse clicks. Here, ComputerGeeks2Go walks you through the process step-by-step.
First, click on your Start button and open up your Control Panel. Now, Windows lets you view your Control Panel in a couple of ways: by list (Picture 1) or by category (Picture 2).
In “List” view, you’re going to click on Programs and Features to uninstall your programs. In “Category” view, click on Programs instead. In either case, a window like Picture 3 will appear.
Look through your list of programs, click on those that you want to uninstall and click Uninstall / Change at the top of the list (Picture 4).
Now a new window will appear, asking you if you want to Uninstall or Repair the program. Make sure the button next to “Uninstall” is checked and click Next (Picture 5).
It’s going to ask you if you’re sure you want to uninstall that program. Check the box that says Remove Data and click Next (Picture 6).
Let the uninstall program run and when the “Uninstall Succeeded” box appears, click Finish (Picture 7) and you’re done.
Now you can enjoy the benefits of a cleaner, faster running computer!
