moderated iTunes with Jaws 2021

Can you tell me which other apps I should uninstall from my computer regarding iTunes before I download the iTunes app from the Microsoft store? I’ve seen Bonjour on this computer but didn’t know what it was. I currently don’t have iTunes installed on my computer but had it on a previous one. Thank you for any assistance.

There are two versions of iTunes available. The newest one is the iTunes app you can download from Microsoft Store. You can still download the older one from the Apple homepage, that's right, but this version - at least as far as I know - will not developed further any more. So sooner or later you will be forced to change to the new app
You've probably heard of Windows 10 S, the OS version allowing only installations of apps from Microsoft Store. In this article:
you can read that Windows 10 S was leading Apple to develop the Microsoft Store version. By the way, the benefit of using the app from Microsoft Store is a clean install. If you install the old native app you will get services from Apple installed too, for example Bonjour.
Because all of this I tried the Microsoft Store app first.
As far as I know Bonjour is a service by Apple. In the web I was reading that Bonjour was made for different devices so they could communicate with each other. And further that not only iTunes is using this service (Quicktime uses this service as well). So if you want to deinstall this service you should ensure that no other application on your computer will use this service.
How to uninstall iTunes completely you can read here:
But be careful: On this side you can read:
Don't uninstall these components in a different order
If you plan to install the Microsoft store app you should know that at this time not all things are fully accessible. At this time personally I thinks there's no need to change to the Microsoft app in a hurry. You can still use the old version as long as you can download it from Apple site. Hopefully Apple will work on more accessibility and you can change later.
I would download from Apple itself. It seems to work better/you’ll also get the little thing which will make sure your software’s up-to-date with Apple products/product is called Apple Software Update. Just download from Apple.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
