Chapter 4. Uninstall the plug-in

The Eclipse™ IDE provides the uninstall feature for all properly installed plug-ins. This feature is mainly available for those plug-ins which were installed via the local or remote site option. The uninstall process can be performed in this way: select Help -> Software Updates -> Manage Configuration wizard.

The opened wizard is the configuration manager. It allows to manage existing plug-ins. Using configuration manager user can scan for updates for a plug-in, disable plug-in or view plug-in's properties. The uninstall feature of the configuration manager is accessible from the right click context menu in order to avoid unwanted or occasional uninstalls.

After the uninstall is done and the plug-in does not exist in the workbench, the Eclipse IDE should be restarted to clean the memory from unwanted references. Just confirm the restart request.
