There are times when you try to delete a program on your computer in the frequent way, from the Windows Control Panel and one of those programs is Eclipse. This tool rarely appears among installed programs , so you will have to try to remove it through other means.

There you will click on ‘Programs’ and then you will enter the part of ‘Programs and features’, there you will see each of the programs that you have on your computer.
Then, in the list you will look for the ‘Eclipse’ icon, you will click it and then at the beginning of that menu you will click on uninstall and the process will begin.

When you enter there you will click on the option of ‘Local disk’ and you will enter the folder that has the name ‘Program Files’.
In this folder you have to find the one that has the name Eclipse IDE and you will also enter it, inside this folder there is an .EXE file with the name of ‘Uninstall’, you are going to execute it and you will give it permission. This uninstalls the Eclipse IDE program.
How to access the root of Eclipse?
In order to get to the root folder of Eclipse there are two more ways to do it. One is from the Eclipse installer, the other can be from a shortcut that is located on the home screen to quickly enter the program.
