Q100125: Uninstalling MODO


This is a guide on how to uninstall individual versions of MODO from your system, as well as remove all associated directories, for a complete uninstall.


MODO stores various preferences, settings and plug-ins in shared directories on your machine so they can be accessed by multiple versions of MODO.

Completely removing MODO from a machine is therefore a is a two step process: The first part being to remove the MODO versions and the second to remove the associated directories.

If you just want to uninstall a single version of MODO then you should leave the directories in place.


How to remove individual versions

  • Run the MODO uninstaller from Start > All Programs/Apps >Luxology > modo > {modo version} > Uninstall MODO.
  • Alternatively you can use Windows program uninstaller from Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall a Program

Windows 10

  • Run the MODO uninstaller from Start > All apps >Luxology
  • Alternatively you can use Windows program uninstaller from Settings > System > Apps & Features 


  • Drag the MODO application to the trash. The default location for this is /Applications/


  • Delete the directory where you installed MODO to. For example /usr/local/modo


How to remove associated directories

If you want to completely remove MODO from a computer, you will need to delete the following directories and files where it stores settings and preferences.



  • C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Roaming\Luxology
  • C:\Users\<USER>\Documents\Luxology



  • /Users/<USER>/Library/Application Support/Luxology

Additionally you can delete any files starting with "com.luxology" from the following location

  • /Users/<USER>/Library/Preferences/
