    How can i remove and delete complete chrome from windows 10 ?


    After a long time of messages in the tray icon that windows 10 is ready for install in one night when i was sleeping it decided by it self to install windows 10. In the morning i found my self with my chrome from windows 8.1 pro with the edge of windows 10. Too many browsers. Why i want to remove delete forget chrome is that once i have 2-3-4-5 windows open of chrome my memory usage in task manager is jumping to 80-90 even 97% then i need to close the chrome windows and i see more 20-30 chrome processes need to be close. I'm not sure how is it with the edge browser.

    But i can't find a solution for the chrome memory leak. When i have 2-3-4-5 windows open of chrome after some times maybe an hour my whole pc freeze stuck hang working so so so slow i need to shut down via the task manager the whole chrome.

    1. Is there any solution for the chrome memory problem ? Not logic that with a pc of 6gb ram i can't open 2-3-4-5 windows of chrome even more.

    2. How to remove the chrome and forget it in case in number 1 there is no solution ?

    3. Does the edge browser have the same problems ?

    Thank you for the help.

    Edge is your Windows 10 default browser.
    So, you will have no problem uninstalling Chrome from Programs and Features.
    If you don't know how to go to Programs and Features, please post back.

    After that, you can go to File Explorer > This PC > open your main drive > locate and open Program Files (x86) if you have a 64-bit OS, or just Program Files if you have a 32-bit OS> find any items related to Chrome or google > delete them.

    You might want to check your registry in order to remove any left-overs from Chrome. But one step at a time.

    You can open as many as you like with Edge and have no slow down or freeze
    I have up to 6 open at a time and never had any problem

    I use IE for years. Never a problem regardless.
