XP doesn't have the start menu search feature and you did have to go directly to what you wanted to open and know its name.

Hi, Arleen,

 

If I remember correctly, in XP it’s called add or remove programs.

Hi there, if you are using xp. If you have to uninstall a program. You always have to go to the control panel.  I can’t remember where in the control panel you had to go. But for windows 7 its there too. But you had to go to programs and features.  Windows ten it’s different. Almost the same as 7.  I’ll look and see where you uninstall programs.  I know on ten you have to go to the control panel.  In xp and 7 you could uninstall programs in the start menue.  I always did it in the control panel.

hi gene.

you said

One of the main improvements in Windows 7 is that you don't have to

look for things as you did in XP.  Use the start menu search and

you'll fined most things, even if you don't know what they are called.

The start menu search is designed to find things when the technical or

exact words aren't used.  for example, use the start menu search to

search for uninstall programs or uninstall a program.  You will find

relevant results even though you didn't use the technical name.  I

don't remember it any more.  But you will find entries in plain

English such as remove a program.

 

 

really?

an option for windows 7 is programs and feature if i am right.

then, if i dont remember the name and like xp, search add-remove

programs does it work and does it find my desired item?

the only place which i recognize that it can find my desired item,

even if i dont know the exact sentences, words or even spelling, is

google search.

i describe story sometimes for google and google finds immediate my

desired option or item for me!

thanks for your great information, God bless you!
