Finding The Control Panel in Windows 10

Dear Computer Lady,

I need to remove Norton from my Windows 10.

I no longer want it but can’t find the add and remove in the control panel.

I can’t even find the control panel.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.


Dear Jean,

It is hard when you get a new operating system and you have to re-learn how to find anything. I am slowly learning my way around Windows 10, and have discovered two ways to find the old fashioned control panel.

First, you can click on start and just type “Control Panel” (without the quote marks). Windows 10 will do a search, and display a link to the control panel that you can click on.

I recently discovered an even quicker way to get to the control panel though, just right-click on the start button, and click on “Control Panel” in the context menu.

Once you get to the Control Panel, you should be able to find the link to uninstall a program.

If you are still having problems removing Norton, they have a removal tool on their website. You can find a link and directions on their website here:
