How to Uninstall Better Discord Completely – Explained

If you want to modify your Discord chat app, BetterDiscord can be a good option. It’s an extension that lets you add plugins to extend Discord’s functionality, use customized themes, additional features and other utilities.

However, Discord’s Terms of Service don’t allow BetterDiscord to modify the platform. They can even ban users who might be using this plugin. Further, a newer version called Bandaged BetterDiscord has been launched that offers more new and unique features.

Regardless of the reasons, if you want to know how to uninstall BetterDiscord, here are the methods.
