Step 2) Uninstall Herd

Search your computer for "uninstall" and choose Add or remove programs.

Find Herd in the list of programs and click the three dots to find the option to uninstall.

Follow the instructions it gives you to uninstall.

Step 3) Remove configs and dependencies

Finally, delete Herd’s configs and dependencies using the following command in PowerShell (or your command line program of choice):

> rm ~/.config/herd

This last step is important to really clear Herd from your computer. If you skip this step and go on to re-install Herd, you’ll find you don’t have a true “blank slate” because any old settings will be carried over.
