How to remove PUBG Battlegrounds using the Apps and Features page on the Windows operating system

This is the easiest method to completely uninstall PUBG Battlegrounds because you don't have to start any third-party uninstaller or log in to one of your gaming accounts. This removes PUBG BattleGrounds for all users, the registry keys, and the installation folder with all the files from your Program Files and your Windows system. When you reinstall PUBG, it will be a completely fresh installation; as far as the game files are concerned, your account data still remains. Follow these steps to completely delete PUBG Battlegrounds on PC.

  1. Click on the Start menu (or press the Windows button on the keyboard).
  2. Click on the gearwheel icon, which takes you to the Settings (Control Panel) window.
  3. Select the Apps menu
  4. Use the search bar to find PUBG Battlegrounds on the list of installed programs.
