Steam is one of the most popular gain platforms. It is the ideal place to create your game collection, as the platform allows users to find games, download them and then install them. It helps gamers keep everything in one place.
However, if you are a hardcore gamer, after a while you might need to get rid of some of the games, especially when you are running low on storage. Here is how you can uninstall games from your Steam library.

Find the game that you want to uninstall and right click it from the sidebar on the left. Choose Uninstall and then select Delete to confirm your decision.
Once you do this your game will be removed from your computer. The game will remain in your Steam library and you can download it again if you wish.
Uninstall games from Windows
