Mods can be installed alongside game installations on Steam. This wikiHow teaches you how to uninstall mods from the Steam workshop by unsubscribing to the addon and then deleting the files manually. If you do not unsubscribe from an addon before opening Steam again, the addon will be downloaded and installed again.
First, deactivating the add-on Log onto the Steam website located at https://steamcommunity.com/. If you are already logged in, this step is unnecessary; however, you can use any web browser to unsubscribe from addons.
You can also do these procedures using the PC client.
1. Hover over Community and then click Workshop. When you hover over Community, which is located at the top of the screen, a drop-down option will appear.
2. Click Your Files You may find this on the right side of the website under the “Your Workshop Files” box, which you may have to scroll down to locate.
3. Click on Subscribed Items four times. It is on the right side of the page, in the box with Played and Items.
You will get a list of all Steam Workshop subscriptions you have.
4. Hover over Subscribed and click the Unsubscribe button. When you hover your mouse above the “Subscribed” button, “Unsubscribe” will appear.
The modification has been removed from your Steam Workshop, so Steam will not re-download it once you uninstall it. It has not yet been eliminated from your game.
You must utilise the file manager to locate your games within the Steam library and manually delete the files containing the unwanted mods.
If you are using the Steam client on your PC, navigate to Library > Games, then right-click the game from the list on the left side of the screen and select Properties. The “Properties” box for that game will open.
2. Navigate to the addons directory within the game directory.
The default location for the addons folder is “[Drive where Steam is installed] > Program Files/Program Files (x86) > Steam > steamapps > common > [Game] > addons > workshop.
If you are using the Steam client on a computer, you can click the Local Files tab inside the “Properties” box and then select Browse Local Files. Your file manager will open to the main game file, but you must still find the mods or addons folder.
3. Right-click the.vpk file and select the Delete option.
Typically, mods or addon packages finish in.vpk, thus you should delete these.
If you have many mods for a game, you should delete the one whose name is similar to the mod name. If you cannot distinguish between them, you may delete all of them, as the ones to which you are still subscribed will be automatically re-downloaded when you restart the game.
