Windows 7: Control Panel not showing sizes 0f installed programs

Control Panel not showing sizes 0f installed programs

I do not know whether it should be like that or not but I find that Control panel >Programs and Features do not list all sizes for my installed apps. For example Office 2007 and many others have no size listed. Is that normal?

Hello Patmos,

Yep, it's normal. If the uninstaller file from that program did not include this information, then it will not be displayed. It was the same in Vista as well. Have to blame the program publisher for this one.

You're welcome Patmos. I hope that you will like Windows 7. Please feel free to ask any question you have about it in the forum.

You can also go the C:\Program Files folder and right click on the program's folder and click on Properties to see how much space the files for a program is using on your hard drive.
