How do I delete projects?
have tooled around a bit getting familiar with the new interface and made a few files but wanting to scrap them out of my rig. Does anybody know how to do that? Step by step would be great if possible thanks in advance everyone
For those of you that don't want to delete the project, but only want to remove the link from the Unreal Launcher here's I found to do it.
Open the file at:
You'll see some entries like this:
Just remove the line with the path to the project you don't want to show up, save and restart the UE4 Launcher. That project should no longer appear under "My Projects". (Until you open it again)
(You probably want to replace 4.9 in the path above with the most recent version number)
That's all ... I must say it's not obvious to find at beginning ! I searched a long time to find it out !
Just simply rename the YourGame.uproject file in the backups etc. to YourGame.uprojectBAK
The launcher just looks for .uproject files.
This is how i've always done it :)

Hi all, I am looking to delete the link so it does not appear in the Launcher, not the project itself (as it seems to do when you right click/delete).
I am duplicating projects for backup and open them in the Editor to test if they are ok. But I don't want to see them permanently in the launcher window or the open project window in the editor.
