A step-by-step guide on how to uninstall League of Legends from your PC.

You likely have a friend or two that hasn’t logged into League of Legends in quite some time. Maybe they were burned out or weren’t getting that satisfaction from the game anymore. You might be feeling that, too. Sometimes League of Legends has corrupted files and reinstalling is the best course of action. Whatever the reason is to rid yourself of Riot Games’ popular MOBA, you’ll need to know how to uninstall League of Legends.

How to Uninstall League of Legends

Unlike, say, Steam, uninstalling League of Legends takes a bit of legwork. It’s easy, but very tedious. It involves using Windows’ Control Panel. Here’s what you do:

  1. Open the Start menu.

    It’s located in the bottom-left corner. You may also open it using the Windows key.

  2. While the Start menu is open, type “Control Panel” and it will automatically search for it.

    Select it from the search results.

  3. Under “Programs” click “Uninstall a program.”
  4. Locate League of Legends, highlight it, then choose “Uninstall.”

    Keep in mind that once you click Uninstall, the process will automatically happen without your input. All related files will be removed, except saved replays. Those are found in Documents > League of Legends > Replays.

It should be noted that uninstalling League of Legends will not uninstall the Riot Games Client. So, if you play Valorant or any other Riot Games titles, they’ll still be available to play. You can always return to League of Legends via the Riot Games Client and simply reinstall.

Now that you know how to uninstall League of Legends, it might be time to move onto a new obsession. There are fantastic titles available for Xbox Cloud Gaming that are begging for your attention.
