Default How do I remove a steam game from my PC?

I downloaded a demo from STEAM a while back - and I want it off my PC. When I went to uninstall the game app - I didn't see it on my list of applications.

I went onto steam account and chose to delete it - but the icon is still on my PC.

Can somebody fill me in as to what I need to do to get completely rid of this game from my computer.

delete the shortcut off the desktop if the game is uninstalled

Try running ccleaner to get rid of any leftover registry entries

Go to steam, go to my games tab, right click the game, click delete local content. confirm

If you have a desktop shortcut, delete it

To make sure it is fully gone, go to computer>C>program files>steam>steamapps

then either your username, or common, different games go to different folders, and check if it is there
