How do I permanently remove an extension from a property?

Answered by Phillip Nicastro

To permanently remove an extension from a property, follow these steps:

1. Open Google Chrome and click on the three-dot menu icon located at the top right corner of the browser window.

2. From the dropdown menu, select “More tools” and then click on “Extensions.” This will open the Extensions page.

3. On the Extensions page, you will see a list of all the extensions installed in your browser. Locate the extension you want to remove.

4. To remove the extension, click on the trash bin icon or the “Remove” button next to the extension. A confirmation dialog box will appear.

5. Confirm the removal by clicking on “Remove” in the dialog box. The extension will be uninstalled from your browser.

If you want to ensure that the extension is completely removed from your system, you can also follow these additional steps:

6. Press the Windows key + R on your keyboard to open the Run dialog box.

7. In the Run dialog box, type “%localappdata%\Google\Chrome\User Data\” (without quotes) and press Enter. This will open the Chrome User Data folder.

8. Within the User Data folder, you will see one or more folders with random characters. These are the profiles associated with your Chrome browser.

9. Open the folder that corresponds to the profile you are using (usually named “Default”).

10. Look for a folder named “Extensions” within the profile folder. Open this folder.

11. Inside the Extensions folder, you may find a folder with the same name as the extension you uninstalled. If you do, delete that folder.

12. Repeat steps 6-11 for the following directory as well: “%appdata%\Google\Chrome\User Data\”

By deleting the extension folder from both locations, you ensure that any residual files associated with the extension are removed from your system.

Restart your computer to complete the removal process.

It’s worth mentioning that these steps are specific to permanently removing an extension from Google Chrome. If you’re using a different browser or a different operating system, the process may vary slightly.

I hope this detailed guide helps you permanently remove the extension from your property.
