I was just in my applications settings to remove an application I no longer use. In scrolling down I noticed about 19 copies of WSJT Many with the same date. What is that all about?Hi Neil, although as Bill has already explained the several superfluous instances of the WSJT-X app aren't in any way troublesome I do find their presence to be mildly irritating - perhaps because I generally like things to be nice and clean and tidy... :-)
My solution to getting rid of the unwanted entries is occasionally to run a freeware app called Revo Uninstaller to remove all the instances of WSJT-X from my 'radio' PC and then to re-install the latest release. If you do use the Revo app to clean things up then the only thing to be careful of if/when you do a scan to delete all the redundant registry entries, files and folders is that you don't inadvertently delete the WSJT-X-related files in the default 'user' folder - you just need to ensure that you untick the relevant boxes when Revo invites you to delete all the no-longer-needed files and folders.
I've used Revo Uninstaller for quite a few years on a variety of PCs running Windows from (I think) XP onwards and have never had any problems arising from its use.
