Windows only: If you stumble upon unwanted Windows programs, you usually have to head all the way to the Control Panel to remove it. MenuUninstaller adds an "Uninstall" option to the Windows context menu so you can remove programs right from their shortcuts.
While you probably make occasional sweeps through the Add/Remove Programs dialog, it's more likely that you discover unwanted programs when you're scrolling through the Start Menu, and rarely do you want to go all the way to the Control Panel just to remove a program. MenuUninstaller adds a simple "Uninstall" option to the context menu for any shortcut on your computer, letting you uninstall a program from nearly anywhere. Just install MenuUninstaller and start removing programs — it's as simple as that.
I've found there were one or two programs it didn't work on, but most of the time if it doesn't work it'll just open up the Add/Remove Programs window for you, thus still cutting down on the number of clicks you'd need to remove a program. Usually, though, once you hit Uninstall in the context menu it'll take you straight to that program's dedicated uninstaller.
MenuUninstaller is a free download for Windows only.
