To uninstall programs in Windows 7, one has to go to Control Panel -> Programs And Features. If you’re looking for a more convenient way to uninstall applications without having to open Add or Remove Programs each time to remove them from the system, Menu Uninstaller is the most suitable tool for you. It lets you remove programs directly from right-click menu. All that is required is to right-click on app shortcut and select Uninstall. This will initiate the uninstallation process after showing you a pre-cautionary prompt to confirm if you would like to remove the specific application.by Farshad

Menu Uninstaller Pro is a freeware Windows tool created to allow users to remove one or multiple programs with no fuss.
If the built-in Windows “Add/Remove Programs” utility isn’t exactly your cup of tea, Menu Uninstaller Pro comes to lend you a hand, offering a much more appealing GUI and multiple advanced tools.
Detailed info about each installed program
The first thing you shall notice after launching the program for the first time is the great amount of information it provides.
Menu Uninstaller Pro displays all installed applications along with publisher, installation date, estimated size and version. Furthermore, selecting any of the entries also reveals install location, support, about and update links.
Sadly, the program only launches the program uninstaller, if there is one, and comes with no dedicated options to scan for leftovers or to force app removal.
Batch uninstallation mode
The truly useful feature however is the batch uninstaller that allows you to select multiple programs and remove them all with just one click. What’s more, Menu Uninstaller Pro displays the total size of the selected items, but it again relies on the standard uninstaller.
Exporting options, logs, searches and encryption
Last but not least, the app can export the list of installed apps to CSV format and show only updates, while a built-in log utility is there to show the latest changes.
A search box is also available to quickly find a program, and so is a password-protection system to make sure no one except you removes apps.
Performance and final thought
Everything worked like a breeze during our testing, with Menu Uninstaller Pro quickly removing all selected apps. It however needs a bunch of improvements, including separate features to look for leftovers and thus provide a complete program removal system.

Looking for an easier way to uninstall your Windows applications? On today’s Tekzilla Daily, Veronica introduces you to Menu Uninstaller, which lets you install any app just by right-clicking its shortcut!
LeizerSoft’s MenuUninstaller adds a feature that should have been built into Windows five versions ago: an Uninstall option that appears in the context menu when you right-click the icon for any installed program. Doesn’t matter if the icon is on your desktop or in the Start Menu–just right-click and choose Uninstall. That should start the program’s associated uninstaller.By Rick Broida, PCWorld
Note that I said “should.” On my Windows 7 system, MenuUninstaller kept crashing–until I followed the instructions on LeizerSoft’s support page and enabled the “Run as administrator” option for the program. That did the trick.
MenuUninstaller is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, and 7. It’s freeware!
Of course, I’m sure some readers will point out that many programs can be uninstalled fairly easily via their Start Menu entries–but that still involves a bit of clicking and searching. And not every program adds its uninstaller to Start.
You also have the option of using a dedicated utility like Revo Uninstaller, which often does a better job removing all traces of a program than the developer’s own uninstaller. But even that can be slow to load up all your programs, and you still have to search for the one you want.
No, I’m definitely liking MenuUninstaller, which puts the uninstall option in the single most logical place.
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.
MenuUninstaller is a free download for Windows only.
