    2 gb of games -- how to uninstall?


    1 I have over 2 gb of windows apps games.
    I don't use them. How do I get rid of them? Can't just delete the data, because don't have permission from system

    2 I have a certain windows app with tons of audio tracks, only one of which I use. How to delete the rest? Also here, I don't have permission from system

    Are you an Administrator ?

    Did you try uninstalling them from here ? Do you still get the "Need Permission" message ?

    I looked there, but I didn't see any games that took up significant space.
    I use SUA most of the time. Maybe I will take a look in the admin account and see if there are more games listed?

    okay, in the admin account I found that 2 gb game, and uninstalled it. no problem there.
    But is there a way I can delete specific audio tracks from a windows app that I want to keep?
    Using TreeSize, I can see the files I want to delete, but I need system permission.

    Isn`t the Music listed in the Music folder ?

    What App are you talking about ?

    Whenever I rip a cd it goes in the Music Folder and in Windows Media Player, you should be able to delete it from either place.

    Individual songs or entire albums.

    Not sure why you`re using anything other then WMP, there`s no need.

    Do you have all your music backed up on your other drive ? And by that I mean Music you`ve downloaded, or that you don`t own on cd.

    I use this app to play background noise while I simultaneously run a music track on AIMP, which is my favorite music player. I use WMP to play yet another background noise. I put on earphones, and all this combined blocks out distractions.
