How to Efficiently Uninstall PlaysTV – Remove Plays.tv PlaysTV
People want to uninstall PlaysTV mostly due to the pop-up right after exiting a recorded game. It’s very annoying every time after you record your gameplay, a pop-up shows to share your recording. Personally I really don’t understand why they couldn’t just put a “Share” button there, let the user choose to click it or not.
Players who would not like to use this feature, should have the option to disable it, returning the game recorder as it is. But there isn’t such an option yet, and when PlaysTV is running in the background, the pop-up ads could appear at the worst time, for example, when you’re watching a movie or playing some action game in full screen. After all this software doesn’t cost a dime, they got to earn profits by placing ads or in some other way.
For that reason, I’m writing this instruction with two different methods, follow which you shall be able to successfully uninstall PlaysTV from your PC. To re-download PlaysTV, click here. To find out what other game recording software you can have, tap here.
