If you’re not a fan of the Google Drive app, you’ll want to delete it. Here’s how to completely delete Google Drive from Windows.
First, launch Google Drive if it’s not already running. Then right click the Google Drive icon on the Taskbar and select Preferences.
The Google Drive Preferences window comes up. Click Disconnect Account and then click Yes to verify you want to disconnect it.
After a few seconds the account will be disconnected and you’ll see the following verification message. Click OK.
Now you can go into Control Panel >> Programs and Features and uninstall Google Drive.
Or, to verify it’s completely gone from your system, use the free or pro version of Revo Uninstaller. This is one of the tools I use to completely uninstall any software, including malware from Windows PCs.
You can also download the free version of Revo Uninstaller via Ninite.com. Here I am using the pro version of Revo Uninstaller – which has a free 30 day trial.
Right click the Google Drive icon and select Uninstall. Now wait while Google Drive is uninstalled and the remaining registry settings are found to be deleted.
Check all of the Blue entries of leftovers of the program Revo Uninstaller finds and delete them.
You still have you’re the Google folder in your My Documents you can still access the files while not online, but will no longer have the ability to sync.
