How To Uninstall TeamSpeak Plugins
Last Updated: December 29, 2020
Do you feel that you have too many plugins on your TeamSpeak client? Or do you have one that’s causing you some problems when you use the platform? If you’re having some trouble with these optional add-ons, you can always uninstall them from your TS3 client. Follow our quick guide below to learn how! Whether you want to delete them from the plugins directory or from the app itself, we got you covered.
Installing plugins and other add-ons on your TeamSpeak 3 can add a couple of new features to your client and improve compatibility with other applications. Some of them allow you to automatically follow other users, change the volume depending on the situation, and change the app’s user interface.
Although installing a lot of these add-ons on your clients seems to be a good idea, don’t expect every single one of them to work all the time. If you encounter one that’s causing problems for your platform, you have the option to disable it in the meantime or uninstall it completely.
If you want to use the latter option but are not familiar with TeamSpeak’s settings, don’t worry since we’re here to help you. Follow our quick tutorial below to learn how to uninstall plugins from your TS3 client.
How to uninstall your plugins in TeamSpeak 3
While plugins can add customizations and can make your TS3 experience better, some of them can be problematic, full of bugs, or entirely not working. In any case, you can always remove them from inside the desktop app or delete the DLL files from the plugins directory.
Here’s how to do it from the TS3 desktop app:
- Launch the TeamSpeak 3 client on your desktop.
- At the top left side of your screen, click Tools, and select Options. Alternatively, you can press Alt + P on your keyboard as a shortcut to access the app’s settings.
- Click “Addons” and go to the Plugins section.
- Look for the plugin that you want to remove from the app and click the “Uninstall” button. If you can’t pinpoint which add-on is causing the problem, you can try to disable all of them one at a time to find the culprit.
Aside from uninstalling the add-ons from the desktop client, you can delete the DLL files from the plugins directory instead. But before you do that, make sure to close TeamSpeak first to avoid any problems.
If you’re having some trouble finding the folder, type “%appdata%” on the search bar of your computer and navigate to “TS3Client.” Once you’re inside the plugins directory, look for the “.dll” files of the plugin that you want to uninstall and delete them.
After erasing the files, open your TS3 desktop app and check your plugins from the options. If you deleted all the DLL files of the plugin, you shouldn’t see it on the list of add-ons.
How can I get the latest TeamSpeak 3 add-ons?
If you want to customize your TS3 client, you can choose to install add-ons such as themes and new plugins. If you have the time, you can even create your own custom add-ons.
But if you want to download and install them without any hassle, you can go to the TeamSpeak add-ons page to check the latest additions out there. Once you find one you like, click “Read more” and follow the instructions to install it on your client.
In addition, most of these add-ons don’t require you to copy the files to your plugin directory. All you have to do is download the file and launch it from the Downloads folder. Afterward, restart your client to apply the changes.
To sum it all up
We can’t deny that plugins are helpful and useful on TeamSpeak 3. Installing these add-ons can introduce you to new features, app compatibility, or even improve your app’s user interface.
However, you can’t expect that every single plugin you install works without any problems. Some of them may be outdated or incompatible with the latest version of the TS3 client. Also, you might not find some of them working as advertised.
Whichever the case, you can always uninstall your TS3 add-ons by going to your app’s options or by deleting the DLL files on the plugins directory. If you don’t want to remove the plugin, you can opt to disable it in the meantime instead.
