Today, most web browsers have the 'mini apps' component baked in or support it independently. Google Chrome is taking that to the next level with the Progressive Web Apps. Several developers are opting for the Progressive Web Apps (PWA) that install the web-wrapper of their app (also called as Chrome apps) on your PC or desktop. The issue arises when you want to remove these apps on your device. You can’t go with the standard ways to uninstall Chrome apps on your Windows or Mac.
Apart from Chrome apps, Google Chrome and other Chromium browsers also allow you to install extensions from the Chrome app store. While these extensions can be helpful in certain situations, you need to keep track of the installed extensions as a large number of unused extensions can bog down the browser's performance.
In this post, we will talk about how to uninstall Chrome apps and extensions on Windows and Mac.

Uninstall Chrome Extensions
As I mentioned earlier, you can install as many extensions from the Chrome web store. But a user shouldn’t go overboard as some sketchy extensions might steal confidential browsing data. After some time, it’s always advisable to check the installed extension list on the Google Chrome browser and remove the unnecessary ones.
Google Chrome looks and feels identical on both Windows and Mac. The steps to remove extension on the Chrome browser is the same on both the platforms.
Step 1: Open Google Chrome browser on your Windows or Mac device.
Step 2: Tap on the three-dot menu at the upper right corner and go to Settings.
Step 3: You will find the Extension at the left sidebar. Tap on it.
Step 4: It will open a separate Extension menu in a new tab. Here, you will see all the installed extensions on your browser.
Step 5: There are two options for you. You can either turn off the extension or remove it from the browser.
If you need the extension for the later use, you can disable the extension from the menu. It will hide the extension from the browser menu bar but remains accessible from the extension menu.
Tap on the Remove option to completely remove the extension from the browser.
Alternatively, you can also right-click (or use the two-finger click if using the trackpad) on the extension in the Chrome menu bar and select Remove from Chrome.

Uninstall Chrome Apps
On sites like Twitter and Spotify, you will find the ‘+’ icon in the address bar. When you tap on it, the browser will offer you to install the PWA (Progressive Web App) on your Windows or Mac. The only problem is, you can’t treat and remove them as the traditional apps.
You can remove Chrome apps from the browser itself. Go through the steps below to remove Chrome apps.
Step 1: Open Google Chrome browser on Windows or Mac.
Step 2: Go to the Chrome apps section of the browser. Navigate to chrome://apps in the address bar and it will open the Chrome apps screen.
Step 3: Here, you will see all the installed Chrome apps. Right-click on an app and select the ‘Remove from Chrome’ option.
Mac and Windows also offer other ways to remove Chrome apps without using the Google Chrome browser.
Remove Chrome Apps From the App Menu
You can uninstall the app right from the app itself. Go through the steps below.
Step 1: Open the Chrome app on your Windows device (In the screenshot below, I opened the Twitter app).
Step 2: Tap on the three-dot menu at the upper right corner.
Step 3: Select the Uninstall Twitter option.
The problem with this method is, you need to open each app that you want to uninstall on Windows or Mac. Wouldn’t it be great if you can remove Chrome apps without opening the app or browser? Thankfully, macOS allows you to uninstall Chrome apps from a dedicated folder.
Follow the steps below to find and remove Chrome apps on Mac.
Step 1: Open Spotlight Search using Command + Space keyboard shortcut.
Step 2: Type Chrome Apps and open the Chrome Apps folder.
Step 3: Here, you will see all the installed Chrome apps. Right-click on the app icon and select Move to Trash.
The process will remove the Chrome app from the Mac.
The ability to offer their website as PWA (Progressive Web App) makes sense for the developers. They don’t have to maintain various platforms, and the team can add features and squeeze those annoying bugs quickly and efficiently. You will have to master the uninstallation process.

Top 3 Fixes for Camera Not Working on Windows 10 PC
Chrome Apps were Google’s original version for having web technologies offer an “experience comparable to a native application.” The modern web is now more than capable, and a final deprecation timeline was set earlier this year. However, Google is now pushing back some of the dates.
Google cites “feedback from our customers and partners” in making these changes. The Chrome Web Store no longer accepts public Chrome Apps, but Google is still allowing enterprise customers to submit new private and unlisted applications.
Meanwhile, Chrome Apps on Mac, Windows, and Linux were supposed to stop working this year. General support will now continue until June 2021, while organizations have another year on top of that.
Google Apps For Mac
Public Chrome OS support was supposed to end on June 2021, but that’s now been extended. The final end date is still June 2022, when:
- Chrome Web Store will stop accepting new and updated private and unlisted Chrome apps.
- End support for Chrome Apps, NaCl, PNaCl, and PPAPI for all platforms.

More information about this deprecation timeline is available on the Chrome Apps migration site.
As a reminder, Google says Chrome Extensions are not impacted by these announcements:
Google will continue to support and invest in Chrome Extensions on all existing platforms. Fostering a robust ecosystem of extensions is critical to Chrome’s mission and we are committed to providing a useful extension platform for customizing the browsing experience for all users.
