How to Find a List of Applications on Your Computer

By John Grossman

Over time, computer users tend to install many applications, making it difficult for them to keep track of every program. Knowing which programs you have allows you to delete unnecessary applications and to free up drive space. It also helps you avoid software conflicts, which can happen when you install two different versions of the same program on your computer. Find a list of all your programs in just a few steps.

Step 1

Click "Start."

Step 2

Click "Control Panel."

Step 3

Click on "Uninstall a program" in the "Programs" category. The "Uninstall a program" window will show you a list of all the programs currently installed on your computer.
