Sometimes, that Chrome app or extension you installed just isn’t doing it for you. Things don’t work out. Here’s how to remove it in a few easy steps.

Removing a Chrome app

  • In Chrome, open a new tab. In the address bar, type in chrome://apps. (Note: If you are on a Chromebook, this will not work. Click here for Chromebook directions.)
  • Right-click on the app you’d like to remove, and select Remove from Chrome.

Removing a Chrome extension

  • In Chrome, click on the three dots Free button in the upper-right hand corner to open the Chrome menu.
  • Click on Settings > Extensions. 
  • If you’d like to disable an extension but leave it installed, uncheck the Enabled box.
  • If you’d like to completely uninstall the extension, click on the trash icon.

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.
