How to Uninstall Gamecaster

calendar1 Last Updated

Gamecaster is a popular app to help simplify streaming. It has a ton of functionality, including optimization for single-screen streaming, tons of choices for backgrounds and themes, and a lot more.

Gamecaster originally started as a separate program from XSplit Broadcaster called XSplit Gamecaster, but it has since become its own company. If you are still using the old XSplit Gamecaster program, you may want to uninstall XSplit Gamecaster completely to upgrade to the new Gamecaster platform.

Below we will give detailed instructions on how to altogether remove XSplit Gamecaster from your PC with a few different methods. Keep in mind that Gamecaster is only available on Microsoft Windows 10.

Another thing to keep in mind is that some of these third-party programs may be malware in disguise, so be very careful about what you install.
