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.
