Uninstalling League of Legends on Windows is easy! Follow our step-by-step guide to quickly remove the game from your computer.
Uninstalling League of Legends on Windows is a fairly straightforward process, and can be done in just a few steps. Before you start, make sure that you have saved any replays or screenshots that you want to keep, as they will be deleted when the game is uninstalled.
Step 1: Uninstall from Add/Remove Programs
The first step to uninstalling League of Legends on Windows is to use the built-in Add/Remove Programs feature. To access this, open the Control Panel and then select “Add/Remove Programs”. This will open a list of all the programs installed on your computer. Find “League of Legends” in the list, click on it to select it, and then click on the “Uninstall” button at the top of the window. This will start the uninstall process. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the uninstallation process.
Step 2: Delete the League of Legends Folder
Once the uninstall process has been completed, you will need to delete the League of Legends folder that is located in your “Program Files” folder. To do this, open “My Computer” and then navigate to the “C:\Program Files” folder. Find the “League of Legends” folder and delete it.
Step 3: Delete the Registry Entries
The next step is to delete the registry entries associated with League of Legends. The Windows Registry is a database of settings and configurations for all the software installed on your computer. Deleting the entries associated with League of Legends will ensure that the game is fully uninstalled. To do this, open the Run dialog box (press “Windows + R”) and then type “regedit”. This will open the Registry Editor.
Navigate to “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software” and delete the “League of Legends” folder. Navigate to “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software” and delete the “League of Legends” folder.
Step 4: Delete the Game Files
The final step is to delete any leftover game files. To do this, open the “ProgramData” folder (located in your “C:\” drive) and then delete the “Riot Games” folder. This folder contains all the game files associated with League of Legends.
Once you have completed these steps, League of Legends should be completely uninstalled from your computer. If you ever need to reinstall the game, you can do so from the official website.
