How to uninstall Nexus Mod Manager – Method one

Step 1 – find search bar

Yes, I named the heading like that on purpose, find the search bar, good one. But in all seriousness, I am aware that our guides are read by users with different experience levels, even beginners.

Step 2 – type NMM into search bar

Now that we made sure we all know where the search bar is, type NMM into it. NMM is the name of the Nexus Mod Manager program on your system once installed.

Step 7 – OPTIONAL – remove temporary files

Congrats, you just uninstalled NMM from your system. Let’s talk temporary files now.

Temporary files are files left behind by uninstalled programs, that were originally installed on your system temporarily to assist the running of the said programs. These should be uninstalled automatically, but that is now always the case.

Over time, these files add up, clog up your system, take up hard drive space and ultimately slow down your computer.

To avoid this, we at UninstallHelper suggest making cleaning of temporary files a monthly routine.

To assist you with this task you can utilize a professional uninstallation program. We personally use and suggest to our readers the REVO UNINSTALLER. It is very easy to set up and learn, plus it won’t cost you more than dinner for two.

As always, this guide is step-by-step and includes all screenshots of what you need to do. If you’d prefer it over the easier (but paid) option, then check it out here.
