Good afternoon gentlemen,

After reading this particular thread, I'd like too ask those of you that
have done this the following question. Is it better to uninstall programs
like Jaws or other applications and programs, by doing this process through
the add remove option, or through either control panel or using the device
manager option.

Hi Richard,

I always remove my previous version of Jaws once I am satisfied that the
latest version is doing all I need it to do. You can safely select to remove
the User Settings, but as others pointed out, do not remove shared settings
because neither Jaws 2021 nor Openbook would work any more and you would
have to reinstall/repair those programs.

As I said, I have no need of the older programs, and I haven't done a tandem
session but once and that was with Eric Damery of FS.

Thanks,



Richard

Another good reason for leaving it, is if someone with only an older version
is helping you, and you want them to tandem in, they cannot do it if your
Jaws is newer than theirs.
Plus, some legacy programs work better with older Jaws.

Thanks John,
I thought that was the case.
All my cleanup is done.
Thanks again,

But whatever you do, DO NOT remove the shared components, this will make
your current version of Jaws inoperative.

Unless your computer is short on space, you have much to gain by
leaving them.

Hello,

I have decided since I have not needed to use any of the 3 older
versions of Jaws since installing 2021, I would like to tap the wisdom
of this list.

There are two items that pop up, Remove Shared Components, and remove
User settings.

Will removing both of those impact my Jaws 2021 installation?



I know FS uses shared components a lot, and I also have OpenBook 9 on
this machine, so want to tread lightly.



And, in case it comes up, I know it isn't hurting my computer to leave
them, but I want to remove them to reduce clutter.



Thanks,



Richard
