How to uninstall games from Win8.1
« on: April 26, 2017, 05:39:44 PM »
hello!
When I bought my laptop, I installed some games to test Win8.1 (in pad mode) and I cannot seem to be able to uninstall them!
They are not in Control Panel and I cannot delete their folder! Any idea? That's so annoying!
thanks!

Go to that same view and right click on the tile.  There should be uninstall there, unless it is a program that is installed by default.

hi Kalos
I have said elsewhere:
Quote
you *consistently* start threads without giving enough information -- this then has to be dragged out of you one question at a time. I need a lot of help on computer myself: I'm the opposite of an expert. One of the things I learned very quickly (I was told) is this: be as helpful as possible when asking for help. Give as much info as you possibly can, do research beforehand, and let them know what you found/didnt find. If a problem, try and fix it yourself: report on that. If you are helpful in these ways, you make the job of the person helping you much easier, and much more rewarding.
I'm no saint, I forget all that regularly, but I'm aware of it, and make up for it where and when I can.

now imagine you want to help some person who has made a post about uninstalling games:
what other info would you need / want in order to be able to help that person?

Requires a little thought maybe, and writing things clearly so we understand without too much effort or interrogation.
