How can Remove Eclipse Correctly and Thoroughly from PC

Hard to find a way to remove Eclipse from Windows? Many people cannot find it available on the Windows uninstaller as well as the third party remover. Let's see what's the specific reason and how can conduct the removal correctly.

More details about Eclipse

remove Eclipse

Eclipse is an integrated development environment (IDE) that used as a develop tool for many computer professionals and developers. It is widely used in computer programming, but when people need to remove Eclipse, most of them haven't the faintest idea where they should start to perform the removal. So today, I would like to talk something more about this program uninstall on the Windows.

Why people have no idea to uninstall Eclipse?

According to collecting the information online as well as the emails I received, the most common difficulty for people unable to remove Eclipse is they cannot find where it is on the computer:

  • The program does not appear on the "Programs and Features" of the Windows Control Panel
  • There is no an uninstaller in the app's installation folder
  • A third party removal tool also cannot scan out this program and allow users to remove

Before writing this post, I also tried to download and install several Eclipse programs on my PCs, and I get the same result as many people encounter. There is no any Eclipse's process on the Windows uninstaller, as well as the uninstaller. This is because the program does not install in a general Windows app sense. To delete it on the computer, you should delete all of its containing folders and traces on the PC.

Guides to remove Eclipse effectively on the PC
