Uninstall MATLAB Toolboxes and Support Packages

To uninstall toolboxes, products, support packages, or other add-ons from MATLAB®, follow these steps:

  1. On the MATLAB Home tab, in the Environment section, click Add-Ons, and then Manage Add-Ons.

  2. In the Add-On Manager window, locate the add-on, and from the ellipsis menu, click Uninstall.

If you already uninstalled MATLAB, then all toolboxes and products for that MATLAB release are uninstalled with it. Support packages, locally installed documentation, and optional features such as datasets, however, remain installed in the support package root folder. You can manually delete this folder, which by default is located here:

  • Windows®C:\ProgramData\MATLAB\SupportPackages\R20XXy

  • Linux®/home/$USER/Documents/MATLAB/SupportPackages/R20XXy

  • macOS/Users/$USER/Documents/MATLAB/SupportPackages/R20XXy

R20XXy is the MATLAB release and $USER is your Linux or macOS username.
