    I find computers easier to use than fancy-shmancy phones. specially Android.
    Me too, Count. I only use my smartphone for phone calls. I don't keep any relevant information on it; not even my location.

    Get-WmiObject -Class win32_Product | select Name, Version | Sort-Object Name | ft -auto > 'W:\Installed_Software.txt'

    Now you have a list of your installed software in a text file. Upload it to OneDrive, use it as reference after a clean install to see what software you had installed earlier and what needs to be re-installed:i
    This command doesn't include everything I have installed.

    Interestingly the command recommended here How to Create a List of Your Installed Programs on Windows Get-ItemProperty HKLM:\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\* | Select-Object DisplayName, DisplayVersion, Publisher, InstallDate | Format-Table –AutoSize includes some of the missing ones and omits others.

    Neither command includes 7-zip or Malwarebytes.

    Get-WmiObject cmdlet in PowerShell with following options writes a list W:\Installed_Software.txt:

    Code:
    Get-WmiObject -Class win32_Product | select Name, Version | Sort-Object Name | ft -auto > 'W:\Installed_Software.txt'

    It works always if entered correctly. It might take some time, up to a minute before the list is populated. Check the command syntax you used. Notice the three vertical bars / pipe symbols ( | ) used to add four commands to one command line, see Wikipedia: Vertical bar - Wikipedia:

    Attachment 145520

    Also notice single quotes around path and file name 'W:\Install_Software.txt', and > character before it which tells PS to send output to a file instead of showing it on screen.

    Delete the old one before creating a new list.

    I tried it twice using copy and paste to paste the command to note pad. The only thing I changed was the drive letter. I was hoping this would work. I just did a clean install of build 16241 and hand wrote all my programs down. I have a large number of programs and that would make it easier the next time I do clean install.

    Way more info than needed but it does list all my programs. Some things listed I have no idea of what it is. The tip @Kari posted is much easier to read. If only I could get all my programs listed.

    Windows 10 Pro IP Build 16299.19 (Branch: RS3 Release)
       25 Jul 2017 #759

    I'm totally in love with WSL and the release of multiple distributions in the Store. I am waiting for someone to write a blog on how to write my own Store app with my custom Linux or make multiple independent bash instances outside of the UWP container.

    I am quite sure I can already build my own Distribution in WSL, but I have no idea how to package the thing so it runs in it's own container in parallel with the ones already in the Store.

    First, let me repeat that to populate the list will take some time. If the list is opened before it's done, it will not show / include all entries.

    Second, some software installers are badly coded, which causes PS not to find application name. Unfortunately 7-Zip is one of those.

    An example. My list shows two entries with missing name, highlighted yellow and green:

    In my case I just had to sort Programs & Features list according to version number to find out that the one highlighted yellow is 7-Zip, and the one highlighted green is Intel Driver Update Utility:

    Took me less than a minute to edit list, adding correct names.
