How to Uninstall Origin

Posted: February 5, 2021

Origin has quickly become one of the favorite gaming platforms and stores for computer gamers. While it is yet to grow as much as Steam, EA's gaming service has quickly gathered tens of millions of users. If you are looking to remove the Origin client from your computer, then you should follow these instructions:

Uninstalling Origin on Windows

Quit Origin, and then head to the Start Menu -> Settings panel. Select 'Programs & Features' to get a list of all software and Windows features installed on your machine. Scroll down until you find Origin, click it, and select the 'Uninstall' button. You will see a prompt telling you that this will render EA games unplayable – you cannot play them without the Origin client, so you should not proceed further if you wish still to play your Origin games.

Uninstalling Origin on macOS

macOS users should be able to complete Origin's removal very swiftly. They need to open the Finder -> Applications folder and then simply drag Origin's icon to the Trash Bin. Keep In mind that Origin games will not be playable without the client.
