How to Uninstall / Delete Apps on Chromebook ?

Clearing up space : As it is evident, every storage space has an upper limit beyond which it starts showing issues. Likewise, Chromebook internal space has a particular volume of storage and beyond that, it would not allow any new addition. Thus, it becomes very important to clean up the clutter and allocate the spaces accordingly for perfect device health.

With newer and newer versions of Chromebook coming up, this has been minimalized and now you can get it done quite easily. Our blog would focus upon the basic methods of clearing the space up and we have divided it into two categories- applications installed in the system and Chrome extensions.

How to Delete / Remove Apps on Chromebook ?

Deleting the applications from Chromebook is pretty basic and you need to follow the below-mentioned steps for it: –

  1. Click on the Launcher option at the bottom left corner of your Chromebook screen.
  2. Click on the up view button to expand it and have a bird’s eye view of all of the applications and software that have been installed in the system.
  3. Alternatively, if you have any particular application in mind, then just type the name of it in the search option and you will get the response.
  4. Right-click on the software option that you want to delete to show up the menu dropdown.
  5. Select the ‘Uninstall’ option.

As a result, the process would run-up in the background with options coming up to prompt your response,and then finally it would get uninstalled from your device, clearing up space as you intended.

If you do not find the application that you are looking for, then it might be there in your Chrome store as either an application or extension. Thus the next section details about it.

Deleting the Chrome extensions

If you have an application as a Chrome extension to get rid of , then please follow the steps given below.

  1. Open your Google Chrome and ensure that your Google account is logged into it.
  2. Go to the top right dots option and then move on to the ‘More tools’ option from the drop down.
  3. From here go to the ‘Extensions’ option. A list of the extensions stored by your browser would be displayed.

Hence, in the background, the process would start running up and the extension would also get removed from your Chromebook. Alternatively, if your application is also present in the Apps section of the Google Chrome, then you can also right-click on the one that you want to remove and select the option.
