Hey everybody. My name is Anders, and today we're going to talk about removing apps that are pinned in Google Chrome. Now here I have a new tab and I've just opened up Google Chrome and you'll notice that I have certain applications in the upper right hand side of my Google Chrome box and perhaps I don't want to use these applications or extensions any longer. The easiest way to remove them is going to be by secondary clicking them or if you are in Windows right clicking them and then clicking remove from Chrome. So I'm going to click that and a dialog box will open up asking me if I'd like to remove this application Google Translate. Now I'm going to click remove. Now you'll notice that this application has disappeared from the upper right hand box and to make sure it's gone we're going to click our wrench icon, we're going to go down to tools and then click on extensions. This is going to open up a new tab which shows us all of the extensions and applications we currently have installed in Google Chrome. So we just want to make sure that our auto translator is gone which it is, and we have successfully removed an application. Now there are certain extensions or applications in Google Chrome that are not going to be in the upper right hand corner here. You are only going to be able to see or access them from your extensions page which I just showed you how to get to. Again, that's wrench to tools to extensions. We're already there and under extensions we have a couple different other things running including Google Quick Scroll. Now say I don't want to use Google Quick Scroll any longer, I can click the little trash icon on the right side of the application's listing and it will ask me do I want to remove this application. I'm going to click remove. See, now it's updated my extension's page and that application or extension no longer exists. My name is Anders, and today we talked about removing pinned applications and extensions in Google Chrome.
