Disclosed is a user interface via an IBM Systems Application Architecture display panel that permits the operator to remove OS/2 Extended Edition 1.0 Communication Manager features without having to know the name of each file removed. The user only needs to select the feature group he wishes to remove. He does not need to know which files belong to the feature in order to delete them himself. Through the panel shown in the figure, the user is allowed to remove features. This panel shows the configured status of each feature so that the user can better evaluate whether a feature should be removed or not. A configured feature is one that has network configuration information set up in a communication configuration file.
