How to delete apps on Google Chrome in 4 simple steps – Business Insider

Google Chrome allows users to install apps from its Chrome Web Store, or directly from a developer’s website. 

Chrome also comes with a selection of pre-installed apps, including Google Drive, YouTube, and Gmail — although all these apps do is take you to those specific websites. 

You can download apps that change the color of Chrome, that let you play games, and even ones that let you draw or play music.

Here’s how to do it on your Mac or PC.
