    Programs and features ,Only 8 programs installed

    Hi, I hope someone can help. i went to uninstall a program via programs and features and noticed that the list and icons only showed 8 programs installed ,i'm certain there is normally around 70-80.

    Everything appears to function as before so i assume the programmes are there hidden somewhere and not uninstalled.

    Has anyone come across this before?. i'm running windows 8.1 32 Bit.

    Regards Dom

    Just for grins I would suggest getting MyUninstaller freeware. See if it shows the same.

    Not run into that myself (BUT if the program was installed from the Microsoft store ((start screen)) it may not show in Programs & Features)

    Yes, Metro Apps are not listed in Programs and Features, only non Metro desktop programs are listed there. Metro apps are uninstalled from the Metro Start Screen.
