ately I’ve seen many users complain that they don’t know how to uninstall Cyberduck, so I’m writing this page to provide the effective instruction.
Cyberduck is a libra FTP (File Transfer Protocal), SFTP (SSH Secure File Transfer), WebDAV (Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning), S3, Backblaze B2, Azure and OpenStack Swift browser for Windows and Mac. With many professional features, this application has won quite a few users these years. But problems have been found during its removal process, and that’s why solutions should be provided in time.
Lighten up, the following instruction should be able to let you know how to correctly uninstall Cyberduck in Windows.
Uninstall Cyberduck Step by Step
1. Try the installer.
> If you have problems to uninstall it, the first attempt can be reinstalling Cyberduck by downloading the installer from the official site, and then perform the removal again. Some installer may even provide the option to uninstall the program. If it completes the removal properly then you are done. If not, go to the next step.
2.Use an Administrator account.
> Make sure you’re running your PC as administrator, or you’ll need to provide the permission password during the removal.
3. Quit the program from running in the background.
> Remember to shut down the program before you take actions to uninstall Cyberduck.
4. End the Cyberduck process.
> Open Task Manager to check whether there is any related process running in the background and end them. This should be able to ensure a smooth uninstall process.
5. Uninstall Cyberduck from the program list (Programs and Features).
> In the bottom-left corner of your screen, right-click on the Start button, and select Programs and Features. Find Cyberduck in the list, double click it to begin.
6. Provide confirmation.
> When asked if you are sure about the removal or something like that, click “Uninstall/Yes” and follow the default uninstaller to proceed until this part is finished.
7. Open the Registry Editor, where the remaining files (leftovers) can be found.
Note: The entries of every program are written on the Windows REGISTRY during installation, so if you want to complete remove one, don’t skip this part. But modifying REGISTRY settings incorrectly can cause serious issues that may prevent your PC from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any issues resulting from the configuring of REGISTRY settings can be solved. Modifications of these settings are at your own risk.
> Hover your mouse pointer to the bottom right corner until you see the charms bar pops up from the right side, click Search, type “regedit” in thebox, and hit the Enter key on your keyboard to open the Registry Editor.
8. Delete the related leftovers to completely uninstall Cyberduck.
> If you don’t want Bonjour, Delete this folder: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Apple Inc.\Bonjour. Then check for other leftovers by clicking Edit > Find… on the navigator, and searching for “Cyberduck”. Delete the result if found.
9. At last, reboot your PC.
After you perform every step above, the program should be gone. What if you think it too tedious to read and understand and want a simpler solution? Luckily I prepared the following part.
