Access Windows 7’s Uninstaller from your PC’S desktop
WINDOWS 7, 8.1, 10
Windows 10 introduced a new tool for uninstalling programs and apps. To open it, click Settings in the Start menu, then Apps. You’ll see a list of all the apps and programs on your PC. You can uninstall any of these by selecting one, then clicking Uninstall.
However, if you prefer it, you can still access the Uninstaller that was available in earlier Windows versions (7 and 8.1). We’ll show you how to add a desktop shortcut for quick access to it.
First, press the Windows key, type control panel, then click Control Panel in the results. Next, click Programs, then ‘Uninstall a Program’. You’ll see all the programs (but not apps) installed on your PC. Select one, then click Uninstall.
If you use iobit Uninstaller ( www. snipca.com/27304), you’ll see a Powerful Uninstall button beside Uninstall. Unlike Windows’ built-in Uninstaller, iobit removes leftover junk after uninstalling the program.
To add this Uninstaller section as a desktop shortcut, right-click any blank space on your desktop, move your cursor to New, then click Shortcut. Next, type appwiz.cpl in the window that opens (see screenshot above), then click Next. Finally, name your shortcut, then click Finish.
