Delete items from profile

Post by JoeyG » 2019-08-04, 20:35

I've just noticed that my profile for the unstable portable version contains a lot more items than a brand-new one.

From the names, the reason for some (e.g. "Extensions") is obvious, but for others - at least to me - it's not.

Here's an image for comparison.

Could someone please tell me what I can get rid of from my profile without breaking anything.

Thank you.

It looks like you have some extensions installed, which is why your current profile looks so different from a vanilla one. A new profile will look very different even from an uncustomized profile that's been in use for a few days.

If you want to clean up your profile, my recommendation is to make a new one and manually add the extensions, customizations, and preference changes you want (maybe with FEBE) rather than try to remove things from the old one.
