Chapter 6. Installing and Running Progra... > Adding and Removing Windows Componen...

Adding and Removing Windows Components

By default Windows Setup omits some accessory programs that Microsoft deemed inessential (mostly network and administration tools). If you feel otherwise, you can install them from the Windows CD. You also can remove optional Windows components if disk space is tight or you don’t want them cluttering your All Programs menu.

To add or remove Windows components

1.
Choose Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs > Add/Remove Windows Components.

2.
In the Components list, check a box to install a component; uncheck a box to remove it (Figure 6.7).

Figure 6.7. Some list items, such as Internet Explorer, are single programs; others, such as Accessories and Utilities, are groups. If you choose a group, click the Details button to install or remove that group’s programs individually.


3.
Click Next.

4.
If you’re prompted for the Windows CD, insert it and continue.
