When I installed Affinity Photo on a my Win 10 computer, I made some sort of error. The computer has a small SSD C: drive, so I am installing programs on the D: drive.

Somehow, Photo did not install inside of a discrete "Affinity" folder (Publisher install worked fine) but rather has separate folders all over the mail Programs folder. I believe they are mostly language folders. If I uninstall, I assume those sub folders will be removed. 

Am I correct? I think I need to uninstall and reinstall. The program works fine--right now--but since there is an update, seems like a good time to fix my error.

Thanks.

Hi SnowQueen,

You would need to reinstall to correct this error.  The files in the wrong place, should get removed but to be sure, you might like to download this from Microsoft:

Just download the small app from the above link, run it and select Uninstalling, click next and you should see a list of apps with Affinity in the list.  This app should do a slightly better job of uninstalling than the standard method of uninstalling and should make sure it takes the left over files with it :)
