Uninstall on windows leaves Context Menu items


#1

I used choco to install and uninstall Atom. After uninstalling, the explorer context menu items are still present.

I apologize, I don’t have the versions I used, this was a few weeks ago.


How To Completely Uninstall Atom From Windows

I’ve also encountered the same problem. I’d re-installed and re-uninstalled Atom so many times but it hasn’t changed. Also I cannot see any of Atom context-menu entries by using programs or in the registry. Looking for someone to help!

Same here, I was able to remove them by searching the registry for “Open Folder with Atom” and “Open with Atom” and removing the “Atom” folder from the three locations.

The three locations are;
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT*\shell

Thank you for help! I did remove it completely!
