In Windows 10 it is very easy. Go to settings then go to apps, you will see everything that is installed.

Also under Control Panel Programs and Features it will show all the WIN32 app you installed and the date you installed. This is where you can uninstall them also.

There is no control panel in the newer versions of Windows 10.

I just updated my Windows 10 to creators update and the shortcut on my desktop remained and still worked. I was trying to uninstall chrome and the full control panel was there. The link was removed but Control panel still there. Try typing Control Panel in search box.

You're right, it is still there. I don't use it anymore because I use all of Windows new tools.

 

Good to know that it is still there.

Er, no.  Control Panel remains available in every version of Windows 10 unless it's been blocked in an Enterprise or Educational setup.  All you have to do to prove this is hit the WinKey and type "Control."   I will be shocked if the first thing returned in the search results is not "Control Panel (desktop app)."

 

I use Control Panel very frequently and have since the first day I had an insider's preview of Windows 10 and I still have it on Version 1703, Build 15063.138.

 

It will be a very, very long time before Control Panel disappears, if it ever does.

If you want to know every single app, whether user installed desktop apps, store apps, or apps that are part of Windows itself the easiest way to see all of them is to hit WinKey+R then enter, “shell:AppsFolder”, sans quotes, of course.

 

The use of this special File Explorer view is also the easiest way to add desktop shortcuts to apps on the desktop.  See:

There is one exception to what the hell:appfolder will slist, it will not list portable applications, such a ADWCleaner.

dc3, If it is portable then it is not installed. So that is no exception, that is the way it is suppose to work.

A portable applicaion falls into that category even if it can't be installed.  I realize that this is a matter of semantics, but I'm sure you can appreciate the distinction being made here. :thumbup2:

Dan, 

 

        I can appreciate the distinction, but a portable application is not, by definition, installed.  Since the original poster, in the subject, was asking about installed apps portable ones do not count, as they are not installed.

 

        There is established context here, and my initial "every single app" is immediately followed by a phrase that clearly eliminates portable apps from consideration.
