If I delete an icon from my desktop am I deleting the program?



Deleting an icon on your desktop or from your Quick Launch Bar does not delete the program; it just deletes the icon.

 If you want to delete a program you will need to do so from the Control Panel. 

 Windows XP:
1. Open the Control Panel and click on Add/Remove Programs.
2. Scroll down the list and click on the program that you wish to remove.
3. Select the option to uninstall the software.

 Windows Vista:

1. Open the Control Panel.
2. Click on Programs and Features.
3. Scroll down the list and click on the program that you wish to remove.
4. Select the option to uninstall the software.
