    Some installed Programs not listed in Programs and Features...

    Some (3, out of maybe 20) of my installed Programs, all working perfectly well, are not listed in Control Panel -> Programs and Features.

    Any ideas on how to rectify this, please?

    Thank you.

    Some programs do not really "Install" by using normal installation process by writing entries in the Registry and so don't show up as uninstallable. "Portable programs" are an example. If they don't have Uninstall.exe (or similar file) in it's folder, you can just delete folder and shortcut.

    Thank you CountMike...they were 'proper' Programs, originally installed via their .exe files.

    As a last resort, I re-installed them (I couldn't uninstall them because they didn't appear anywhere) and they now appear in their correct place within the Programs and Features section of Control Panel.

    Still not sure why though...

    WINDOWS 10 Nov update

    Well I have about 200 Programs installed, 380 with Steam Games.....about 30 showing in Programs. So it is cute you only have a few Exes to reinstall and are happy. This is still a weird Problem to have all these hidden Program installs showing in Uninstallers and not showing in Program lists in Windows 10 or using Start 10. Erased lists of installs. Must hunt and find Installed Software to run.
