Can't Unistall Davinci Resolve 17 from Windows

No DaVinci Resolve to uninstall!


So, you want to uninstall Blackmagic Design's DaVinci Resolve 17 from your Windows computer, but you can't find DaVinci Resolve in the Add / Remove Programs control panel, and you can't find it in 'Apps' either.  I had the same problem; I was upgrading to DaVinci Resolve Studio, and it's recommended that you uninstall the free version before upgrading the the Studio version.

My setup has DaVinci Resolve installed on the C:\ drive and I am logged in as a 'standard' or non-administrator user.  When logged in as the standard user, DaVinci Resolve does not show up in the Add / Remove Programs control panel, nor does it show up when I searched for 'App' like you always do on Windows 10.

However, there's a simple solution - log out of your standard user account and log into your Administrator account.  Now, in Apps you'll find DaVinci Resolve right there to easily uninstall!  You don't need any third party software or dig through the registry to manually delete keys - just be sure you are logged into your Administrator account on your Windows 10 machine and you can easily uninstall DaVinci Resolve 17!

Hope this helps someone out!

- Will
