We are often asked by email how to actually uninstall an installed Google Chrome browser . You can do this in several ways, but the easiest way is certainly via the new Windows 10 Settings app, which you can use the familiar key combination
can call. Then you have to go to the settings area
Apps (uninstall, defaults, optional features)
switch. Then the area is immediately
Apps & features
visible, in which all installed Windows 10 apps are listed . We have shown you this in the following figure as an example.
Here you can see all installed Windows 10 apps in alphabetical order, including “Google Chrome”. You now have to do nothing more than click the button
click. For security reasons, the following query then appears again before deinstallation.
The exact message is:
This app and all related information will be uninstalled.
The actual removal process from the Chrome browser does not begin until you click ” Uninstall ” again . However, there is another query that looks like this.
Here you will be asked whether all saved browser data may also be deleted . This includes, for example, cached websites , cookies and also stored passwords . Depending on your needs, you can set this option or not. Only after the final click on ” Uninstall ” will all components of Google Chrome be uninstalled and deleted from the Windows 10 system.
Finally, the success message that the Chrome browser has been successfully uninstalled appears in the remaining standard web browser (in this case Edge).
