About Revo Uninstaller’s hunter mode
Various uninstaller software like the famous IObit uninstaller and some others can remove their programs by right-clicking on the application’s desktop shortcut and this means you can uninstall the software without you having to open the uninstaller tools first then it will guide you on what to do. This saves more time and is very useful.
Revo Uninstaller doesn’t have these features but has what is called Hunter mode and it is kind of similar. If you click on the Hunter button located on the menu the rest of the program will minimize to just to reveal a floating, movable, small box on your desktop.
To operate on the Hunter mode, you will first open the program you wish to uninstall, and then drag the box onto the program’s open window. The following are options that pop up when you use Revo uninstaller’s Hunter mode: kill process, open containing folder, uninstall, properties, stop Auto Starting, kill and delete process and search at Google.
And probably you would have realized already that it will be very useful not only for quickly selecting the programs to uninstall, but help in closing programs that won’t shut down completely.
But unfortunately for me, I’m unable to get the Hunter mode to work on the programs I used them on. As it worked only three times.
