Empty "Uninstall a Program" List on Windows Server 2016

Q

Why the "Uninstall a Program" list is empty on Windows Server 2016?

A

On earlier versions of Windows system, the "Uninstall a Program" in Control Panel always includes system programs and application programs.

But in Windows Server 2016, system programs are no longer listed in the "Uninstall a Program" list.

1. Login to your Windows Server 2016 system as an administrator.

2. Go to "Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features".

You see an empty list of "Uninstall a Program", if you have not installed any applications on the system yet.

This is a nice feature. Hiding system programs prevents you uninstall any system programs by mistake.
