How to Uninstall Eclipse on Windows 10


If you are someone like me who had installed Eclipse on their Windows 10 PC and is now looking for ways to uninstall Eclipse on Windows 10, you are at the right place.

Because in this article, we are going to show you various ways in which you can uninstall Eclipse on Windows 10 PCs.

It is worth noting that Eclipse is the software also known as an IDE which is used for building Java applications similar to how Android Studio is used to build Android applications.

However, if you have already installed Eclipse, you probably already know very well what Eclipse is so we are not going too much into detail.

One thing that annoys users is that Eclipse is not very easy to uninstall on Windows 10. Even if you uninstall Eclipse from Windows 10, it will come back on the PC.

Even though uninstalling Eclipse on Windows 10 is tricky, we have found various ways to do it in a manner with which it won’t come back to the PC.

First Method: Using the Eclipse Uninstaller App

It is not as if there is no official way to uninstall Eclipse from Windows 10 because they do provide an official uninstaller application for Windows 10 users.

Here is the link to download the Uninstaller application on your PC running Windows 10.

After downloading and installing this application on your PC, follow the instructions inside this application to uninstall Eclipse from Windows 10 once and for all.

Second Method: Use the Add/Remove Programs option inside Windows 10

For this method, you have to not install any external applications because all you have to do is make use of an inbuilt feature inside Windows known as “Uninstall a program” option.

  • To do this, first open Start and type Uninstall a Program.
  • Click on Uninstall a Program option to open it.
  • After that, find the Eclipse application on your PC from the list of programs and click on Uninstall at the top of this program right next to Organize.
  • Once you click Uninstall, Eclipse Uninstaller will start doing its job.
  • You just have to follow the on-screen instructions and the program will be uninstalled.

Third Method: Uninstall Eclipse on Windows 10 using System Restore Point

If both the above methods fail to uninstall Eclipse from your computer, we have an option to roll back to a System Restore point on our computer.

Basically, this is a feature inside Windows that creates a Restore Point for the last known time when Windows was working fine on your computer.

Technically, our PC is running fine now but we need to go back to a Restore Point when we did not have Eclipse installed on Windows 10 PC.

This is how we can completely remove Eclipse from our PC.

  • To go back to a System Restore point when there was no Eclipse installed, open Start and type Create a System Restore point.
  • Now, open the window and click on the button titled System Restore…
  • You will now see a list of all the Restore Points that have been created by your system.
  • Sadly, if your PC has not created a Restore Point then you will not be able to go back.
  • If a Restore Point is found, go back to the Restore Point when you did not have Eclipse installed on your PC.
  • For this, you will have to use your memory and recall the date at which you installed Eclipse.
  • Once you remember that date, go back to a day prior to that date and restore the system to that point.
  • Now, you will not have Eclipse installed on your PC once the system is restored to that point.
