Uninstall?



  • This may seem silly but how do I uninstall this? It's not listed in W7's Program & Features panel, nor can I find an installer!



  • It probably means you made a standalone install. Just go ahead and delete the folder.



  • For whatever reason, vivaldi installs to the profile by default and since the impulse of most users is to just press install, people will miss the advanced button that lets you install for all users (program files) or as a standalone folder.

    If you have a profile that isn't admin on windows, you're even more screwed because vivaldi will install to the profile with admin access, rather then just installing to the profile without admin access. which means you won't see the shortcut anywhere and have to hunt down the folder to delete it.

    That said.

    I recommend opening advanced and setting the installer option that works for you. If you already have an admin profile and have no qualms about deleting the folder, go ahead. If you want a easier to maintain program, install for everybody.

    Xactly.

    Had the same issue. Vivaldi installed to Admin profile and could not see it in Programs to uninstall in my profile.
    Log-in as Admin and uninstall from there then reinstall to suit your needs.

    I still had to go into other profiles and delete shortcuts as I am the only one interested in testing.

    Perhaps an: "Install for this User Only" option ?



  • That is strange, I just hit install without even opening the advanced functions, but I do see the option under programs to uninstall it. I'm concerned now that it actually did installed this as admin.
