Uninstalr 2.1 changelog:

  • Improvement: The program can now better detect portable apps stored in the system.
  • Improvement: Greatly improved the analysis and detection of Steam games. For example, sometimes a Steam game installation would show only a few KB installation size, when the actual size was much higher.
  • Improvement: The program can now better handle files stored in the user's Documents folders. Sometimes this folder contains only documents, as the name suggests, but sometimes installed apps also add their files in there.
  • Improvement: Comes with updated Swedish translation. If you want to improve the translation of the program in your language, please download this file, open the translation file of your language with any text editor such as Notepad++, locate the [custom_strings_uninstaller] section and edit any poorly translated texts from there. After you are done, you can send the updated file via TranslationsSupport and it will be included to the next released version of the program.


  • Fix: The program fails to detect the installation of certain Steam games, for example, Goose Goose Duck.
  • Fix: The program can list some Steam games twice, such as Quake Champions.
  • Fix: Ctr-clicking Show App Types > Platform: Steam would also check the Chocolatey App type, and vice versa.
  • Fix: The program can sometimes list specific type of installed software more than one time, for example, Backup4All. Note: Not all duplicate listings of installed apps are incorrect. For example, if you install Skype from Microsoft Store and then from their website as a standalone app installer, you will end up with two instances of Skype installed, and listing them twice is correct and expected with Uninstalr.

Known issues

  • Known issues: The default installed software scan is slow in cases of a lot of installed software. For example, if you have over 200 installed software, the default installed software scan is probably going to take a few minutes. In such case, you can change the scan setting from the Settings view for the program to start faster.
  • Known issues: The program doesn't fully support screen readers.
