To replace or uninstall software like the Google Chrome web browser from your computer, you just need to find a list of installed programs. In Windows 7, the function is entitled as the ‘Uninstall Programs’ or the ‘Add/Remove Programs’ in the prior editions of Windows OS. If it fails, you need to remove the Chrome browser manually from the registry. Though the task doesn’t need any advanced technical knowledge, it does need accuracy. To know the step-by-step directions, you can either call on the Google Chrome customer service number or check the steps listed below.
Step 1 – Access the ‘remove.txt’ file on the Google Chrome browser website. Click on the Chrome Settings icon and choose the ‘Save page as’ option.
Step 2 – Find the desktop on the ‘Save page as’ screen, choose the ‘All Files’ option from the drop-down menu beside the ‘Save as type’ tab, and then input the ‘remove.reg’ file name, followed by clicking the ‘Save’ button.
Step 3 – Close your Google Chrome web browser, and then double-click the ‘remove.reg’ File on your desktop. Once prompted, click either the ‘Yes’ or the ‘OK’ button.
Step 4 – Click the Windows Start button, then input ‘Cmd’ in the Search bar and press the ‘Enter’ key. Click the ‘Run’ button if you’re running Windows XP. Now, a command prompt window displays.
Step 5 – Enter the ‘%LOCALAPPDATA%\Google’ into the command prompt text box. While using Windows XP, you need to input the ‘%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google’ text in the cmd window.
Step 6 – Right-click on the ‘Chrome’ folder in the menu that appears, followed by the ‘Delete’ button. This action removed the Chrome web browser from your computer registry.
However, if you have to face any issues when adding or searching for the file extensions, click the ‘Start’ menu, and then the ‘Control Panel’ icon, followed by the ‘Folder Options’ tab. Then, click the ‘View’ button to deselect the ‘Hide extensions for unknown file types’ option. It is also suggested you back up the registry before you start the removal process.
However, if these steps fail to work or uninstall the Google Chrome program from the computer’s registry or you’re searching for the additional solutions to fix Chrome issues without uninstalling it, you can contact the professionals. All you need to call on the Google Chrome support number to directly speak with the experts so that they can provide you the best possible solutions within the shortest time.
