    Is there a way to list all installed (or user installed) applications on my computer? I would like to save this as a text file, copy to my clipboard, etc so I can keep a backup of everything I installed on my computer.

    Thanks.

    Thanks. I will check out the software. Any way to do this without 3rd party software?

    Check out this page. It's fairly old so I don't know if it is still applicable, and I'm on my Mac so I can't test it right now.

    A more up to date version is as follow................
    (I did not post it to the OP because it does not really work in my win 8.1 rtm. It will only list installed programs under the name of either Windows or Microsoft, and it ignores other 3rd party programs. It works correctly in my Win 7 Home Premium.)
    Perhaps you will shed some light on this matter?
    Thank you.

    open Cmd > run as admin > type wmic > press Enter.
    at wmic:root\cli prompt > type /output:C:\InstallList.txt product get name,version > press Enter.
    Wait till wmic:root\cli prompt appears again.

    The txt file can be found at the root of C: drive.


    P.S. Belarc is far more superior.
