I recently got a mod that has made my minecraft crash when I open it (Yes I deleted META-inf) so I just wanted to delete minecraft with no traces and reinstall it, so how do I uninstall it?

Register or log in to remove.

Removing the .minecraft folder in %appdata% will remove Minecraft completely but you will also lose you save file. Backup the saves folder in there first.
A mod that crashs your Minecraft? Just click force update in the MC launcher. You change only the minecraft.jar with the mod thats why you don't need to remove the whole folder.

If you want to deinstall in 100%, hit start, and in the search bar, type %APPDATA% with the %. Then, move into roaming, and there is your .minecraft folder. Just remove this folder and you're done. But it is better to revert your minecraft by hitting force update when starting the game. This is found under options, near the login button.

  • Go to the start button in the bottom right
  • In the search bar type "Run" and when you open it type "%APPDATA%" (without the " "s )
  • Delete the .minecraft file.
Warning this will remove all saves, screenshots, stats and everything
