How to Delete Microsoft FrontPage

by G.S. Jackson

The last version of Microsoft FrontPage was released in 2003, and this software has been replaced with Microsoft Expression Web. If you have been stuck with an older version of Office or FrontPage in your company workstations for cost or compatibility reasons, it may finally be the time to make the switch to Expression Web. Deleting FrontPage itself involves running the Windows "Add/Remove Programs" utility, followed by deleting the FrontPage folder to eliminate it from your hard drive.

Click "Start | Control Panel | Programs | Programs and Features."

Select "Microsoft FrontPage" from the list of programs installed on your computer.

Click the "Uninstall" button at the top of the list. Windows will ask if you are sure you want to uninstall the program. Click "Yes." Windows will uninstall the program.

Navigate to the FrontPage folder in Windows explorer, located in "C:\Program Files," and delete the folder named "Microsoft FrontPage 2003," if it still exists.

Click "Start," then enter "FP20_._" (without the quotations) in the search bar. When a list of files and folders appear in the search panel appears, delete all FrontPage files by right-clicking on the file and selecting "Delete" from the drop-down menu.
