Steps to remove Visual Studio Code completely from Windows 10:

I have solved my problem to uninstall Visual Studio Code completely in Windows 10

  1. Go to Visual Studio Code path.

     %LocalAppData%\Programs\Microsoft VS Code
    
  2. Click on the 'uninst000.exe' file.
    uninstall Visual Studio Code  completely in Windows 10

  3. Will see Message Box to confirm uninstalling Visual Studio Code > press YES.
    Remove Visual Studio Code  completely in Windows 10

  4. After the uninstalling is done, delete the Code folder at the blowing path

     %AppData%
    

    uninstall completely VS Code ?

  5. Delete the .vscode folder at the below path

     %UserProfile%
    

    delete

Now, the Visual Studio Code should be completely uninstalled and all old settings and extensions have been removed and you are ready to install a fresh VS code again on the same PC without uninstalling Windows.

Thank you Ali.   My VS Code simply would no longer function and was completely useless!
It couldn't ever do C# and JavaScript.  It only worked with Python, and then barely.
If you don’t ask, the answer is always NO!
