What software is installed on my PC?

Somebody asked me:

How can I easily get a list of all installed software?

I didn't know how to do this, but I got lucky searching. At least, it seemed to work for me:

  1. Open a command prompt.
  2. Input WMIC and press Return. You will see a prompt that looks like this:
  3. wmic:root\cli>
  4. At the new prompt, execute the following command:
    product get name
  5. Then "quit".

This will generate a list of installed applications.
