There’s no classic interface where you would see a menu bar followed by a list of programs that you have installed, but you can activate something similar to it if you click on View and select the List view.

How to delete applications and speed up the computer with Revo Uninstaller
There are a lot of situations where people who are interested in uninstalling applications discover that programs which they want to delete don’t have a Start Menu entry, or if they do, there’s no uninstall link there to activate the removal process.
One such example can be seen on the image above. The application Deep Sound which we talked about before has a Start Menu entry, but it doesn’t have the usual uninstall link provided there. This is where Revo comes in handy, because notice on the right that Deep Sound is available in the list of applications which you can remove from your computer. To remove an application, you’re gonna have to right click on it and select Uninstall.
Choose between the type of uninstaller that you want, application’s own uninstall wizard or the one offered by Revo. What you see on the image above is the Revo app uninstallation in progress. It’s more thorough, but also slower so use whenever you can afford to wait for the process to finish.
Revo is a great tool which you can use not only to remove installed application, but also to fix the list of installed programs and remove those that you’ve deleted manually, which some people do when they have no other option of how to remove applications that they no longer used. By clicking the Tools button you can remove junk files or you can edit the list of programs which are started with Windows. Try Revo Uninstaller and see how it can help you.
