How do I organize all programs by the last time they were used in Windows?

Alex June 8, 2014

So I was on the “Uninstall a program” section of the Control Panel, and I tried to organize all programs by the last date they were used on.

Unfortunately, on this page all those fields are blank. Because of this, I am unable to determine the last time a program was used without having to remember it.

Please help me fix this. Thank you.

    Thank you all for your effort in helping me solve this situation. However, since I discarded my old computer in favor of a new one, and I'm not certain that the problem will persist, I am putting this thread on ice until I confirm that the problem reappears on my other computer, although that would be rather odd considering it is a totally new computer. Again, thank you all for your hard work to help me out.

    Open Uninstall or change a program, on windows 8 if you click on the right empty space you will got more options such as Sort By

    Try using IObit Uninstaller, it shows installation dates and even has a section for "recently installed" which can be very useful.
