Uninstall Outlook app


How do I uninstall the Outlook app? I don't want it because:
- I don't use Outlook tasks and didn't realise that this was the main relationship between Outlook and Todoist, and
- I don't think it installed properly anyway, as I never saw anything regarding Todoist anywhere in Outlook.

The only entry in my "programs & features" control panel page is Todoist (which I assume is the general Windows app)

I should also point out that I believe that the Outlook app installation attempted to restart my PC without asking or warning - which I managed to avert just in time!

Hello Paul,

If the plugin asked for a reboot then it's possible that it installed the Microsoft .NET Framework (required for it to run) because it might have not been installed on your computer. If that's the case then the Outlook plugin hasn't installed yet.

Either way, it should be listed as "OutlookTodoist" in the "Programs & Features" section. If it is - you can uninstall it from there. If not - it should be listed in Outlook's Options -> Add-Ins, click on "Go" next to "COM Add-Ins" at the bottom and you can remove it from here. If it doesn't appear in neither Outlook nor Programs & Features then it's possible that it indeed hasn't been installed yet.

Best regards,
