    Show "All Programs" in Windows 10.

    Hi,

    If you go to Control Panel via Start Menu, then to Control Panel page, type 'programs' in the search box - upper right corner, then 'show all installed programs on your computer' at the left side of the page under Programs and Features you should see all
    programs on that page and also the vertical list in the Start Menu.

    The only thing missing is the 'bonjour' software.

    If more than this is missing you should do a restore if you had all programs listed before.

    All programs not listed in Control Panel/Programs and Features?

    Programs are supposed to be installed in the same drive where Windows is installed, so that's where Control Panel looks for them.

    There's no law on the books against installing programs in a different drive, but if that's your choice you have to deal with the results on your own.

    Don't you mean Start then All Apps
    If they are missing then they must be uninstalled already.
    If I have got it wrong then please explain more of what you are trying to do and what Apps you are trying to remove.

    The "Control Panel uninstall list" is called Programs and Features. It only lists the programs you, the user, have installed personally.
    The apps that come with Windows 10 are not included in Programs and Features.
    Some of those apps can be uninstalled by right clicking at them > click Uninstall.
    Some you cannot uninstall without special way. If you have some of those, please post back with the names.
    And then there are some you just can NOT uninstall.

    I will try to make a description that is more accurate.
    • Apps I have installed all show up on the Start Button/All Apps list. Examples are XNview and Free Photo Viewer.
    • However, when I got to My Programs and Features page the same apps are missing from the list.
    • In order to uninstall one of these, Programs and Features wants me to click on the app I want to uninstall.
    • Can't do it because they are not listed on Programs and Features list.
    • Question...
    • How do I get them on the list so that i can uninstall?
    • Same situation occurs when I want to designate an app as a default... not on the Settings list.
    • They are not available
    P.S. I am aware that there are apps on the list that I don't want to mess with, such as Intel or Lenovo!

    Go to All apps > find the program under the Alphabet > right click at it > click Uninstall.
    Example : Auslogics.
    All apps > Alphabet A > right click Auslogics > Uninstall.

    Programs Missing From Control Panel List

    Works for uninstall.
    Still don't have apps showing up for choosing defaults

    Settings > System> Default Apps
     
  9. davidhk Win User
    Right click at Start > Control Panel > top right, click View by : select large or small > click Default Programs > wait for loading > left side, scroll to find your app > click it > click Set this program as default.

    Otherwise, tell me which program you want to set as default.

    Sorry for taking so long.. family commitments over the weekend. Computer was off!
    1st irritation... Can't set PHOTOSCAPE as default to open Photos related. Right now XNVIEW is default. I want to delete it, but it is one of those that is on the all apps list but not on list that can be uninstalled (Programs and Features) PHOTOSCAPE is typical of a few others I want to make default. XNVIEW is typical of a few more I want to uninstall.

    I read somewhere that only 64 bit programs show up in these lists. Mt tech knowledge is limited. Does that mean anything?

    You said .......
    "Right now XNVIEW is default. I want to delete it, but it is one of those that is on the all apps list but not on list that can be uninstalled"

    Well, go to All apps > locate XNVIEW > right click at it.
    Do you see the Uninstall option ?

    Let me know if you are able to uninstall XNVIEW this way.
    If yes, then we'll go to next step.

    To make available Photoscape as a program to set as default, one must set at least two formats, like .jpg and .png, to Photoscape via Properties of a few files.

    I was able to get rid of XNVIEW by downloading it and using it's own uninstaller.
    Have tried method suggested by Pyramid 10 with photoscape without success.
    Can't figure out how to do what is asked.

    Your next suggestion?
