Open the Programs and Features control panel. 
This screen contains a list of the programs installed on your computer, the company that developed it, and when it was installed.

 

Right-click on a program to make it highlight. Once you highlight a program you will see two new options next to the Organize and View button called Uninstall and Change (sometimes contains repair option).

 

There are two ways to Uninstall/Change/Repair a program as below:

1. Click the Uninstall or Change button next to the Organize and View button

2. Right-click the program, then choose Uninstall or Change

 

My question is:

What's the difference between these two methods? Are they exactly the same?

:welcome: to Bleeping Computer Cindy :)

Uninstall is to generally remove completely while change is a customize option to remove certain software features or components bundled within the installed programs.

Yes, they are the same no matter how you access them.  It's just a matter of preference.  Personally I will use right-click when it's available rather than moving the mouse pointer all over the place.  I even know a few who prefer to use keyboard exclusively.

Totally Right! They are just different type to access, and the destinations are the same. From my own experience, I never used change or uninstall button.I just get used to right-click the program and choose Uninstall, or use the uninstall program to directly uninstall the program.
