Chrome may be one of the most widely used browsers, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t better alternatives available out there. If you have already found a better alternative and wish to uninstall Chrome from your system that unnecessarily hogs precious resources.
You might also need to uninstall Chrome if it’s acting up and you plan on doing a fresh re-install. Whatever your motives, this guide will serve you just fine. Moreover, uninstalling Chrome from your system is as plain sailing and straightforward as it gets. Along with that, you have more than one way to uninstall it from your PC.
Remove Chrome Using the Settings App
On Windows 11, you do not need to go through heaps of menus and can easily uninstall the Chrome app from your PC using the Settings app.
First, head to the Start Menu and click on the ‘Settings’ app tile to continue. Alternatively, press the Windows+I keys together to open the app.
Then, click on the ‘Apps’ tab from the left sidebar to continue.
Next, from the right section of the window, click on the ‘Installed apps’ tile to proceed.
After that, either search for the app using the search bar on top of the page or scroll down to manually search for it.
Once located, click on the ‘ellipsis’ icon (three horizontal dots) on the right and then click on the ‘Uninstall’ button.
After that, again click on the ‘Uninstall’ button to commence the removal of the app.
And that’s it. You’ve successfully uninstalled Chrome from your Windows 11 PC.
Remove Chrome Using the Control Panel
The other way to uninstall Chrome from your PC is by using the Program and Features tool in Control Panel. This is the legacy method that has also existed in the previous iteration of Windows, but that does not mean it is outdated or cumbersome. If you’re more comfortable with Control Panel than the Settings app, this is the way to go.
First, head to the Start Menu and type Control to perform a search. After that, click on the ‘Control Panel’ tile to open it.
Next, locate and click on the ‘Program & Features’ tile to continue.
Then, locate and click to select ‘Google Chrome’ from the list, and then click on the ‘Uninstall’ button to remove Chrome from your system.
Google Chrome will be uninstalled from your PC.
Uninstalling Chrome is simple and easy, as it should be, and not tricky as it might seem at first. This guide will help you next time you wish to remove the Chrome browser from your computer.
