Re: Best Way To Remove Nvda And Do A Clean Install

Earle Zwicker

I just wanted to thank all of you for the great information. I have uninstalled everything, and reinstalled, and everything is working perfectly again.

Nvda just gets better and better all of the time.

I'm finding the Windows 10 addon to be especially useful.

Maybe the uninstaller should ask if you want to remove your settings or just the program.  It shouldn't be this convoluted to remove everything, should people want to.

NVDA is in several parts.
The program can be removed with Programs and Features.

The user configuration won't be removed when the program is, and this
confuses a lot of people. Do this:
1. From the Run dialog (Windows+r), type:


And press enter.
2. Find nvda in that directory and delete it.

It's best to do this when NVDA is not running.

If you just want to restore your user settings to factory defaults
without addons, then deleting the configuration should be enough.
