You know how tough it can be to uninstall computer programs on older versions of Windows. You go to the Start menu, then Control Panel, then "Uninstall a program." You highlight the software you want to delete, then wait some more as it's uninstalled.

That's a headache, even when it's not the worst-case scenario, which is when a nasty program won't delete, no matter how many times you hit "uninstall." That process has been streamlined a bit with Microsoft's Windows 10, although it still takes too many steps.

Now, from Start (Windows icon), you go to All Apps; right click the program you want to delete, then "Uninstall." Then, you still have to scroll through all your apps, and uninstall them one by one.

There's an easier way to uninstall programs. It's called 10AppsManager and it displays a couple of dozen apps on a pop-up screen. Each app is its own, easy-to-read icon.

You'll see apps such as Skype, Money, Xbox and others. To delete a program like Money, click on it and you'll see a message asking if you're sure you want to uninstall it. If you are, click "yes."

Underneath those icons are three buttons: Reinstall, The Windows Club, and About. (More on those in a minute.)
