How To Uninstall Discord


Even at the time this article was written, Discord and all of its associated files take up significantly less than 100 megabytes (MB) of space on a typical hard drive. However, there are times when it is necessary to delete Discord from the hard drive of your computer. This could be because some of the files have become corrupted and you need to reinstall them, or it could be because you are trying to quit gaming for a while and the app is too much of a temptation to get you back into the game with your friends. There are also other reasons that could be just as valid.

In the following guide, we will walk you through the uninstall process of the Discord application on your personal computer. If you want to take it a step further and delete the leftover files that are still on your hard drive after the programme has been uninstalled, there are some additional instructions listed at the bottom of the page that will show you how to do so.

Therefore, let us move on!

How To Remove Remaining Discord Files Post-Uninstallation

You are not required to carry out the following step; in fact, if you plan to re-install Discord in the near future, you should probably preserve the leftover files on your computer so that you can get set up again more quickly. However, if you want to remove Discord from your computer in an appropriate manner, the actions that are listed below should be followed.

Un-hide Hidden Items

In most cases, Windows will automatically hide the files in question by default. To reveal all files, start by opening a new window in File Explorer; after that, navigate to the View tab located at the very top of the window. You need to seek for a checkbox that either says Hidden Items or Hidden files and Folders in the list of options. It’s possible that this will look different to you depending on the version of Windows that you’re running. Fill in the blanks.
