Cloud storage is something most of us use, even without realizing it. Many people ignore the fact that when they take photos on Android, they are saved directly to the cloud. But maybe we don’t want to use this service or we prefer to keep everything locally, then we should uninstall Google Drive, either in Windows or in our mobile devices.
How to uninstall Google Drive in Windows
The first thing we will do is press the “Windows + i” keys on our keyboard to access Windows Settings. Once we are in the configuration, we will have to go to “Applications”.
In the left sidebar we will have to make sure that we are in the “Applications and features” section and on the right side we will have all the applications that are installed on our computer. We can search for Google Drive or simply use the search engine at the top.
When we find it, we will click on “Google Drive” and we will see that a button appears that says “Uninstall” we will simply have to click on it and follow the instructions to be able to uninstall the application from our computer.

After this, an icon in the form of a recycle bin will appear at the top (depending on the manufacturer of the device, something else may appear, but the option will be available) we can click on “Uninstall” or drag Drive to the icon.

Remove Google Drive from a device
As you can see clear, remove or uninstall Google cloud storage it is too simple a process on any device. Perhaps you could consider the idea of using OneDrive, especially in Windows that works great, especially since OneDrive is from Microsoft itself and is perfectly integrated into the operating system, it is too comfortable, especially if we use too much Microsoft Office.
