How to completely uninstall android studio from windows 7?
I installed Android studio some time ago using the following suggested method:
To set up Android Studio on Linux:
Unpack the downloaded Tar file, android-studio-ide--linux.zip, into an appropriate location for your applications. To launch Android Studio, navigate to the android-studio/bin/ directory in a terminal and execute studio.sh. You may want to add android-studio/bin/ to your PATH environmental variable so that you can start Android Studio from any directory. Follow the links to install the SDK outside of the Android Studio directories.
For whatever reason it has become corrupt and insists I must un-install and re-install. I can't for the life of me find how to un-install it however.
I didn't use apt-get so I can't do apt-get remove .
Does anyone have any suggestions?

I would suggest to check the installation directory for a readme or an uninstall script but in general: do what you did to install it in reverse order and delete everything you added as a setting or as a file on your system related to that installation.
Installations done with a tar file are mosttimes uninstalled with the rm command. You go to the directory where you went for this: "Unpack the downloaded Tar file, android-studio-ide--linux.zip, into an appropriate location for your applications" and rm the files and directories created here.
If you did "You may want to add android-studio/bin/ to your PATH environmental" too you will need to undo this alteration by deleting android-studio/bin/ from the file you added this PATH too.
These are default locations as of Android Studio 1.0.2 and it is possible to change them by editing . /android-studio/bin/idea.properties .
- Delete the android-studio folder;
- Delete the sdk folder if it is in not inside the android-studio directory;
/.AndroidStudio , which contains config and system ; Delete
/.local/share/applications/jetbrains-android-studio.desktop , if you created a shortcut using Configure->Create Desktop Entry.
Note: Add on to step#5 above - Sometimes the icon launcher can be in one of the following locations to:
If your launcher file is in any of the first two directories, you will require root permissions to remove it.
A deeper step of removing Android Studio completely from your Linux Distribution would also include the removal of PPAs related to Android Studio.
- Go to Software and Updates > Other Software
- Scroll down the list and select to find the ones related to Android-studio
- Click remove and authenticate
This helps stopping updates and the very annoying error message:
The package has not been installed. I can't find the archive for it.
