How to Remove Google Chrome From Program Files


When you install Google Chrome, an program folder is created in you C drive's "Program Files" directory. If you wish to remove Google Chrome from this folder, it is inadvisable to merely delete the folder, because registry entries and shortcuts will still exist that could cause annoying errors. Instead, you should use Google Chrome's uninstall feature, located in its Start menu folder. If you have difficulties with this method, you can also use Windows 7's Add or Remove Programs function.

Google Chrome's Uninstall Program

  • Close Google Chrome.

  • Click the "Start" menu, "All Programs," "Google Chrome," and "Uninstall Google Chrome."

  • Check "Also Delete Browser Data" if you wish to remove your history, bookmarks and other preferences.

  • Select the default browser you would like to use after uninstalling Chrome. If you have no other browsers installed, this will be Internet Explorer, which is packaged with Windows 7.

  • Click "OK" in the confirmation window to remove Google Chrome.
