How to uninstall QuickTime

To get started, you need to open the Control Panel. Windows Vista and 7 users will be able to find the Control Panel as an option after clicking Start. If you’re using Windows 8 or 8.1, Microsoft has instructions on how to open the Control Panel.

For Windows 10, right-click the Start button in the lower left corner of your desktop and select Control Panel from the context menu.
