    Add/Remove Programs


    Hello,

    Where is that listing, that W7 had, to easily remove installed programs ? Was called Add/Remove

    Want to get rid of the McAfee anti virus that came with the brand new PC I now have.

    And, if I plug in an external HD, how do I access it/switch to it, to use ?

    Thanks,
    B.

    It's still in the control panel like it was in WIn7. Scroll down the start menu and you'll find in under, Windows Systems.

    Plug in a USB external HDD it will show up in File Explorer. Use Auto Play in control panel to change how it opens. Removing AV will leave remains tho. Check there site see how they recommend to remove and what to check for.
