MenuUninstaller 1.2.1 – Uninstall Applications From The Context (Right Click) Menu

imageIf you’re a power user, and a fan of the right click context menu, then you might consider adding MenuUninstaller to your setup. MenuUninstaller is a free Context Menu alternative to the Windows Add or Remove Programs applet, which will allow you to quickly uninstall an application without having to search out an application’s native uninstaller (assuming there is one).

A quick walkthrough:

In the following example, I’ve right clicked on the selected programs icon on the Desktop, then clicked on “Uninstall).

If you follow the same process, you will be asked for confirmation (a just in case moment).

Make sure the correct application is selected and then hit “Go”.

In the event that the application can’t remove the selected program (and I did find a few), it will offer to open the Windows Add/Remove applet.

Overall, I wasn’t particularly impressed with the limited functionality of this application. My choice for this type of work has long been (and remains), Revo Uninstaller’s “Hunter mode.

Revo Uninstaller’s unique  Hunter mode, offers some simple, easy to use, but effective and powerful approaches to manage applications (uninstall, stop, delete, disable from auto starting), and to search out information on installed and/or running applications.

Selecting Revo Uninstaller’s “Hunter Mode”……..

will place a “Hunter” (target) icon on your screen.

Drag the target icon (say, on your Desktop), to an application’s icon and ….

you can then uninstall the application, or chose from a range of additional actions, as illustrated in the following screen shot.

Revo Uninstaller is one of the very few applications I have ever rated a 10/10.

  1. I’m giving the Revo free-mode a try. Thanks for the tip.

    Thanks for the article Sir!
    Revo UI is probably the best on the market now. Although I did find many users mentioning Total Uninstall and Your Uninstaller as Revo’s suitable alternatives.
