Removing a Chrome app

    Pretty stinky that Chrome expects you to know the command, chrome://apps !?! They have extensions in their menu, why not apps ?!?

    Chrome://apps doesn’t take you anywhere except to a page with an error message indicating it isn’t valid. As Dan said, why can’t apps be listed in Chromes menu under “more tools” like extensions, or fix the link chrome://apps. Also, in Win10 Pro an app can be uninstalled by right-clicking on the apps icon in the Start list.

    If you’re using a Mac, then the easiest way to remove the extension if to scroll all the way to the top right-hand corner of your screen. There should be a small icon including the company logo of said extension. Double click on that, and the option to remove the extension should pop up. Just click on that option, and then Viola!
    Hope this helped a bit!
