Method 3: How to uninstall Genshin Impact on PC via different software uninstallers

The methods up there are not the only solutions to remove an app from Windows. Many slightly professional users tend to install a distinct uninstaller app to uninstall their other apps completely from the system.

The process of removing apps in these uninstallers is pretty identical. 

  • Step 1: Download and install a software uninstaller you are interested in. Ashampoo Uninstaller, Wise Program Uninstaller, and Revo Uninstaller are just a few examples.
  • Step 2: Locate the list of all programs already installed on your machine.
  • Step 3: Select Genshin Impact and find the uninstallation button/option. The program does the job for you as cleanly as possible.

How can I completely delete my Genshin Impact game account?

When you uninstall Genshin Impact on PC, the app vanishes, but your game account remains untouched and you can re-install the game, log into your account and play again. 

It is possible for players to not only uninstall the game but also delete their accounts as well. To do so, you need to simply send an email to the support team and ask them to delete your miHoYo account. They will take your login details and delete the account for you within 30 to 60 days.

This is the only approach if you tend to delete your account and start the game anew. Be noted that you do not have to wait for your current account to be deleted to start the game freshly. Once you ask the team to delete your current account, you can create a new account using a new email and start playing from scratch right away.
