Solved How to check deleted or uninstalled apps in a Win PC?

November 5, 2015 at 06:33:46
Specs: Windows 8.1 Single Language, Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU G645 @ 2.90GHz 2.90 GHz / 2.00GB (1.71 GB usable)
I just wanted to check which all apps I deleted because I recently deleted a lot of 'junk apps' from my PC and I am now feeling like I deleted an essential app for the PC and just can't remember its name.So is there any Windows feature which shows which all apps were deleted?

Use a keyword/clue in search.

You can look here or similar ( I don't have W8.1 )
C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Archived History

Tool.

What behavior are you seeing that makes you think you uninstalled an important program?

Thanks for the reply!

But Its not about the behavior I intended to ask. I just wanted to know which all apps
I deleted. I was a guy who downloads many things from the web(safe) but recently I felt like I don't need this much apps as they are simply taking up my computer memory and deleted a dozen of apps. Now I am feeling like I deleted an app which was doing something good for my PC and then I got a idea by knowing which all apps I deleted I could find that app.

It will only show up if it used the MS Installer to install the program but this is probably the best your going to get.

Right click on "Computer" on your desktop / start menu and hit "Manage".

Under "System Tools", expand "Event Viewer", "Windows Logs", and select "Application".

On the right, click "Filter Current Log"

In the new dialog, for the "Event sources" drop down list, select "MsiInstaller"

Thanks for the reply!

But it's not the built-in apps I referred to moreover I downloaded it from Chrome and not Store.

" I downloaded it from Chrome"
Have a look in Chrome history.

I looked in Chrome history and found out a number of things but it's real hard searching like that in a stockpile of history data! Is there any geeky type and more accurate way of finding?

Using keywords made finding more easier but when I used the folder path Windows said it couldn't find it.

But Browsing History View tool worked perfectly! I was able to know the name of the thing I was looking for.It's also good for many other things.

Thanks a lot for your help!
