If you have issues uninstalling Vivaldi while using Windows 10, Windows 10 provides two different UIs to add/remove programs: the old style UI, and a new modern look (see screenshots below).
Only the older style UI will allow a non-admin user to uninstall a single user installed program.
Older add/remove program Windows UI
New add/remove programs UI in Windows 10.
To uninstall Vivaldi from Windows 10, make sure that you are using the old add/remove UI.
To ensure that you are, follow these steps:
- Use ⊞ WinKey+R to open the Run dialog,
- Type: control appwiz.cpl,
- Press OK,
- Scroll down to the “Vivaldi” entry and double click it.
Alternatively, you can also uninstall the browser by using the setup.exe we include with Vivaldi and calling it directly, e.g. assuming the version number is 1.7.735.29, start the run dialog and then issue the following:
%LOCALAPPDATA%\Vivaldi\Application\1.7.735.29\Installer\setup.exe --uninstall --vivaldi
