Method 6: Using a Third-party App

This is more of a suggestion than a step. Nevertheless, it is recommended if you plan on thoroughly cleaning your system.

The default Windows uninstaller will get the job done. Nevertheless, it wouldn’t completely clean your system of other files the program stored on your device.

A Windows-wizard may know how to clean it manually thoroughly. Still, they are third-party applications that can completely clean your Computer of the remnants.

A few I can recommend are Revo Installer, IObit Uninstaller, Ashampoo Uninstaller.
