I'm trying to uninstall my attempted install of Windows Media Player 10 but it doesn't show up in the Uninstall Wine Software program.  So just want to go in and delete it manually.  I am fairly new to Linux.

I'm not arguing with that.  I was 'lucky' enough to get the 'free'
CrossOver for Mac.  I use many, many bottles there.  I think that is why
the hard drive of this machine is running out of space!

BTW, the local Mac repair shop/sales place had a sale on External 1TB
plug-in hard drives.  They ran out of them before I could get there (and
I live exactly one mile away.)  That would have given me many more
bottles and build space.  I guess I'll have to be faster next time.
