How to Uninstall BetterDiscord
Take a look below to see how to uninstall BetterDiscord cleanly from your computer:
1. Download the BetterDiscord installer
The first step is opening Google and searching for “betterdiscord“. Select the first search result (the “https://betterdiscord.app” one) to open the official website (see below).
Once the website opens up, find the “Download” button (blue button next to the “Discord Enhancement Project” title) and click it.
2. Run the BetterDiscord installer from your desktop and select “Uninstall.”
After the installer finishes downloading (either on your Desktop or the “Downloads” folder), open it.
You should see three options here – “Install“, “Repair“, and “Uninstall BetterDiscord“. Select “Uninstall BetterDiscord” to…uhh, well, uninstall BetterDiscord!
3. Select “Discord app“
After selecting “Uninstall“, you’ll also need to select “what” to uninstall. There are different versions of Discord, you see.
Select the main Discord app (like in the screenshot above) and then click “Uninstall” in the bottom-right corner of the installer.
This will being the uninstallation process. Just wait until it finishes and then close the installer.
But wait, that’s not all. I also recommend deleting the BetterDiscord configuration files from the “%localappdata%” folder on your computer.
The uninstallation process didn’t delete those (why would it, right?).
4. Go to %localappdata% and delete the BetterDiscord configurations
If you don’t delete these configurations, your Discord app may glitch out from time to time, so deleting them is almost a necessity.
To do this, open a Windows Explorer folder (any folder on your computer) and type in “%localappdata%” in the search bar (see screenshot below)
Once you do this, the Windows Explorer page will redirect you to the folder you need. Inside this folder, you’ll see a bunch of other folders of apps on your computer.
Scroll through the folders and find the “Discord” one. Then, right-click on it and select “Delete“. Confirm if necessary, and you’re done.
Now, Discord won’t try to open BetterDiscord when you run the base app, so you have no errors in store for you.
To summarize, you can’t uninstall BetterDiscord like a regular app, from the Control Panel or Settings.
You’ll have to download the BetterDiscord installer from the official website, run it, and then select “Uninstall BetterDiscord“. Quite the confusing process, I know.
Oh, and remember – delete the Discord configuration files from the “%localappdata%” folder too (see guide above).
That’s it. If you have any questions or if Discord doesn’t work after following this guide, hit me up in the comments section below and I’ll try to help you!
