I never noticed that. How weird.
If you right click on the folder and select 'group by' > 'name' it will arrange into alphabetical order in groups of A-H, I-P and Q-Z. That is the best I could find. I am assuming you want to just have a list of everything sorted into alphabetical order, without grouping folders separately?

To undo the grouping, just select 'group by' > 'none'.

It gives you this:

You can try to repair installation, or uninstall everything.

If we want to start making a true effort at saving our planet, yes. Yet until that day, we're stuck at being forced to let valuable storage space go to utter waste on our solid state drives due to several hundreds of things which are inside Windows even though we won't ever use them and we can't usually get rid of them much easily, either.


Dependency Hell?
Dependencies aren't such a huge problem to me because I have enough spare time and experience to eventually grow a fair bit of immunity towards them, for example by researching the impact of all sorts of futuristic trickery.

Yeah? I have yet to see a single "average" user that knows enough about Windows to know which feature are important and which are not. Chances are, if an "average" user gets to choose which features to install and which to leave out, you'll end up with yet more arguments about how Windows doesn't do enough or doesn't support some features, simply because the "average" user chose not to install them, and does not know how to put them back later.

Windows live is a virus. This is my conclusion.

So many times I have had issues with windows live installations and uninstallations and after many hours I finally would just format or forget about it.

I really wish microsoft would allow you to download the stand alone packages instead of that crapshoot of a downloader... why do so many software packages want you to use these stupid downloaders is beyond me... If I want to install live messenger I should be able to just download and only install it and nothing else... but nooooo...

Hmm well I installed messenger and live mail all by itself, no problems.

I can't remember the exact process, been several months now but you can select individual packages to install, unless they recently completely changed it.
