SOLVED! Uninstall Chrome, BUT Cannot Find in Programs and Features

Just handled a situation, a number of computers have Chrome installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application, but Chrome or Google Chrome didn't show in Windows's "programs and features" or when "uninstall programs" using Windows control panel tool. Instead of using a 3rd party tool to do the uninstall, you may try this approach


  1. Download the Chrome MSI file from Google - https://www.google.com/work/chrome/browser/
  2. Double click on the MSI file to install Chrome
  3. Now, uninstall it - Right click on the MSI file and select "Uninstall", or simply use the normal way to uninstall in Control Panel.

That's it. Just a note that you have a choice of downloading a 64-bit MSI or a 32-bit MSI file for use, they're different. If your Chrome's application is in C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application, choose the 32-bit version. If the Chrome is under C:\Program Files, choose the 64-bit version.
