How to Uninstall Kodi

Kodi (formerly known as XMBC) is an open-source media player application that is available for free. The application is developed and released by the non-profit tech consortium XBMC. Kodi offers its users a wide range of features and is available on several different operating systems. Some users, however, have encountered problems when trying to remove the program from their computers. Hopefully, the methods outlined below will manage to get the job done.

Mac users who wish to remove a specific add-on and not the entire application can do so by opening Kodi and then going to 'Add-ons' followed by 'My Add-ons.' Navigate to the add-on that is to be removed and click on the 'Uninstall' button located in the bottom-right corner of the window.

To remove Kodi completely from a Mac system, open Finder and then go to your Applications folder. Locate Kodi and move it to the Trash. To make sure that no residual files are still present on the system, users will have to visit the following locations and delete any Kodi-related files manually.

Return to Finder but this time select 'Go' followed by 'Go to Folder.' In the window that appears, type ~/Library/ and then hit 'Go.' Now, check the following locations for Kodi-associated files and remove them:

~/Library/Application Support/Kodi
~/Library/Saved Application State/org.xbmc.kodi.savedState
~/Library/Logs/kodi.log
~/Library/Caches/
~/Library/Containers/
~/Library/Cookies/

Windows users can attempt to uninstall Kodi from the Control Panel. To do so, type control panel in the search box on the taskbar and open the top result. Click on 'Uninstall a program' located right below the 'Programs' section. Locate Kodi in the list of installed programs, right-click it, and choose 'Uninstall.' Follow the displayed instructions to finish the uninstallation process.

If the above method was unable to remove Kodi, users can try to do so through the Windows PowerShell. Type PowerShell in the search box on the taskbar, right-click the top result, and choose 'Run as administrator.' Copy and paste the following command into the PowerShell window:

Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | Select Name, PackageFullName

Now, look throughout the list of installed applications until you have located the entry for Kodi. Copy all of the information right after the PackageFullName line. You can do so by selecting the text and pressing Ctrl + C on the keyboard. To remove Kodi type the following command in the PowerShell window but substitute PackageFullName with the information you just copied:

Remove-AppxPackage -package PackageFullName

Press Enter to execute the command. All that is left is to restart your computer and then check if Kodi has been removed successfully.
