How do I do a full uninstall of SourceTree in windows 10

How do I do a full uninstall of SourceTree in windows 10?

A simple uninstall through Control Panel leaves all the information I want to get rid off. When the program is reinstalled, all the bookmarks, repos, etc reappear.

As I am working on Windows 10, the location of the source tree files referred in other posts do not apply.

Use the Control Panel's "Add/Remove Programs" tool, just like with any other legitimate software that you might install in Windows.

No. A simple uninstall through Control Panel leaves all the information I want to get rid off. When the program is reinstalled, all the bookmarks, repos, etc reappear.

I'm not Atlassian, I'm just another user trying to help. Maybe if you'd been more clear in your original question about what you mean by "full uninstall" my original answer could have been more helpful.

If you want the software uninstallation to delete your local repositories, I don't think that can happen. That's a significant amount of data destruction, and that data is completely legitimate without SourceTree. If you want the bookmark settings to be removed along with SourceTree, that's reasonable, but I'm not about to go uninstalling my own SourceTree to see if that happens.

Fixed your original question for you.

I have the same problem.  I finally figured out that the uninstall deletes most of the things from %localappdata%/SourceTree, but doesn't delete anything out of %localappdata%/Atlassian.  If you remove that last folder, then the reinstall goes through the install wizard again instead of just magically reopening SourceTree

Alright I got it working, I used ccleaner. Uninstalling from control panel takes while. I used CCleaner to flush this software out. I was able to install the latest version now. 

I hate software from developers unable to create proper un-/installers!!! Shame on YOU!
