How to Uninstall LiveEdit from Windows

If you need to remove LiveEdit from your Windows computer, you should follow a two-step process. First, you'll uninstall the application through the Control Panel, and then you'll manually remove any residual files from the AppData folders. Here’s a step-by-step guide:


Step 1: Uninstall LiveEdit Using Control Panel

  1. Press the `Windows key` on your keyboard or click on the Start menu.
  2. Type `Control Panel` and press Enter or click on the Control Panel app to open it.
  3. Once the Control Panel is open, look for “Programs” and click on “Uninstall a program” under it.
    - If your Control Panel is in Category view, you might need to click on "Programs and Features."
  4. Scroll through the list of installed programs and find “LiveEdit.”
  5. Click on “LiveEdit” to select it and then click on the “Uninstall” button above the list.
  6. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the uninstallation process.

Step 2: Remove Remaining LiveEdit Files from AppData

Even after uninstallation, some programs leave behind residual files in the AppData folders. Here’s how to remove them:

  1. Open a File Explorer window. You can do this by pressing `Windows key + E` or right-clicking the Start button and selecting “File Explorer”.
  2. In the address bar at the top of the File Explorer window, type `%AppData%` and press Enter. This will take you to the roaming AppData folder.
  3. Look for the “LiveEdit” folder within the Roaming directory. If you find it, right-click on it and select “Delete” to remove it.
  4. Now, go to the Local AppData folder. In the File Explorer address bar, type `%LocalAppData%` and press Enter.
  5. Similarly, look for the “LiveEdit” folder and delete it if it exists.

Step 3: Clearing Temporary Files (Optional)

To ensure that all temporary files associated with LiveEdit are removed:

  1. Press `Windows key + R` to open the Run dialog box.
  2. Type `%temp%` and press Enter. This will open the folder containing temporary files.
  3. You can delete any files here that are associated with LiveEdit. However, be careful not to delete files that are being used by other programs.

Step 4: Restart Your Computer

After you have followed these steps, restart your computer to make sure all LiveEdit services are completely stopped and all temporary files are removed.

Please ensure you have administrative rights when performing these actions, as some steps may require such privileges. If you encounter any issues during the uninstallation, it may be helpful to use third-party software uninstallation tools that can remove leftover files and registry entries. However, be cautious with third-party tools and only use reputable ones to avoid potential system issues.


Reinstallation (Optional)

If you wish to reinstall LiveEdit after the uninstallation, simply download the latest version from the official website liveedit.app and follow the installation instructions provided there.
