Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Hi, I'm not in a position to uninstall and test this out but quite often programs can leave data behind in the AppData folder. If you go to %APPDATA%\Local you may find a folder titled UnrealEngine. This could be the remaining files. I can see my equivalent directory is around 275MB.

The other place to check is the location of your install to see if any files have indeed been left behind. I would also recommend enabling Hidden Files in Windows Explorer just incase any of them are marked as Hidden.
