Delete Game

When you install an orb on your computer it creates the following: an orb folder inside the GODDGAMES folder, a desktop shortcut, and a shortcut in the Windows Start menu.

To completely delete the game, all three of these items should be deleted.

The steps for this procedure are:

  1. Find and delete the orb folder.
  2. Find and delete the orb desktop shortcut.
  3. Find and delete the orb Start menu shortcut.

Find and Delete the Orb Folder

Use Windows Explorer to find the folder for the orb.

1) Place the cursor on the Windows Start button located on the left side of the bar at the bottom of your screen (Figure 1).

Move the left scroll bar so that you see the C: label for your hard drive under the heading Computer in the left pane of the window.
