Chapter 6. Programs and Documents > Uninstalling Software

6.11. Uninstalling Software

When you've had enough of a certain program, and want to reclaim the disk space it occupies, don't just delete its folder. The typical application installer tosses its software components like birdseed all over your hard drive; therefore, only some of it is actually in the program's folder.

Instead, ditch software you no longer need using the Add or Remove Programs program described above. Click the Change or Remove Programs button at the top left, and then proceed as shown in Figure 6-16.
