It is easy to install a palette. I can also overwrite an installed palette. How can I get rid of an installed palette?

PacletUninstall, e.g. something like

PacletUninstall["Cryptography"]

It doesn't seem to be working: failure to uninstall

Somehow my brain misread "Paclet" instead of "Palette" the 5 times I read your title/post. My mistake.

So, there is no way to uninstall a palette?

Do you see the palette installed here? If so, can you manually delete it?

SystemOpen[
 FileNameJoin[{$UserBaseDirectory, "SystemFiles", "FrontEnd", 
   "Palettes"}]]

It opened the directory in Windows and I deleted the file of the palette, but it stays visible in the Palette menu.

Did you restart Mathematica after deleting the palette?

Yes, they are still in the menu.

It does not seem that the issue was resolved. There is no hope that we can uninstall a palette?

Two other places you should check for palette-related notebooks are the Applications folder in BaseDirectory and UserBaseDirectory. If you find files related to your palette in those folders, delete them and restart Mathematica.

Thanks very much. It actually worked.
