Quick way to export the list of installed applications on a Windows system

Well, yeah, there are many applications for this which give you this information in a much better way, but assuming you don’t want to find them, or just maybe don’t have any internet connection; the easiest thing to do would be to export this registry key below:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

You only need regedit, that is it! 🙂

Having done that, you can now just open the .reg file you’ve just saved using a text editor and have a look. It gives you the names of all the installed applications, and.. a bit more. Well, you can just search for the DisplayName key values continuously to learn the names of the apps.

Quick and easy. That is what we wanted after all, right?
