I didn't know this either--it's very useful to save a list of installed programs. Thank you!

By the way my CCleaner version is 3.11.1550.
You are right - I did misunderstand. And I didn't know that the "c" in .csv implied other kinds of separators (like tabs). I can't check what level of CCleaner I have since that PC is currently at the doctor having its hardware checked. It will come back with perhaps some new hardware and definitely a reinstalled Windows. (Hence my need for the inventory of installed software.)
