Sometimes you download an Android app to your Chromebook and find that it just doesn’t work. Other times, your storage space is full and you need to clean it up. Or maybe one of your favorite apps just got a PWA equivalent and you want that Android version out of your life.
Regardless of the situation, removing apps from a Chromebook is an essential skill for any ChromeOS user. And it’s easy. Honestly it is a lot less painful than on Windows.
Here’s how to remove apps from a Chromebook.
Remove apps from a Chromebook
- Click the small circle in the lower left corner of your screen to open the Launcher.
- Right click on the app and select remove.

If you decide you’re missing the app after uninstalling it, don’t worry — you can go back to the Google Play Store and install it again.
