I installed sagemath 8.8 in Windows using the .exe installer from

There does not seem to be an uninstaller.

I accidentally installed it in the wrong folder, and I want to repeat the process, but first I need to uninstall it.

Any suggestions?

I just uninstalled it with "remove programs" in Control panel, followed by removing the .sage directory. Apparently there was a file uninst.exe in the directory where I installed sagemath.

It would be nice to add that option in the Windows Start menu. I guess there is no more to it.

Using standard system's tools to add/remove all or part of a program is a normal operating procedure and can't be seen as undue user's load. On the other hand, modifying the system's Start menu to introduce a command which, by definition, can be used once seems pretty pointless...
