    Hi. I recently uninstalled Chromium web browser from my Windows 10 laptop computer but the app icon still appears in Default Programs. Please help. I want to get rid of the icon but I am unable to. Currently running Windows 10 Creators Update (version 1703).

    Chromium as default browser windows 10

    I don't have chromium (or chrome) installed so I may not be able to help.

    try changing from within chromium

    • Click on the Wrench icon and select Options
    • In the Basics tab, click on Make Chromium my default browser in the
      Default browser section.

  3. Default Browsers changes on opening Google Chrome!

    Hi,

    yes, that is so. You can turn off that feature from chromium's settings. (chrome:settings)....uncheck "always check if chromium is the default browser."

    and

    from IE...

    Tools>Internet Options>Programs tab, check "Make internet explorer the default program"

    Regards.

    Chromium icon still appears in Default Programs

    Hi, try Revo uninstaller. If there is nothing left of Chromium for Revo to find now, reinstall Chromium, exactly as before, then launch Revo and use Revo to start the uninstallation.

    It runs a scan after the normal uninstaller to catch remnants. Highly recommended for years.

    E.g.
    uninstall chromium browser - Windows 10 Forums

    Or you could try opening the folders containing the start menu shortcuts and delete the shortcut that way.
    Or install Classic Shell start menu and delete it from there.

  5. Thanks much. I tried installing Revo uninstaller and re-installing Chromium. I then uninstall Chromium using Revo and it works.

    Great- one up for Revo! Note: I routinely use Geek uninstaller (free) for uninstalling programs- does much the same job, and a bit faster for routine use. Worth using these tools routinely.
