This documentation refers to PhraseExpress v17 beta. The documentation for the production version 16 is available here.


If you want to keep PhraseExpress but feel lost with the settings and just wish to reset PhraseExpress to a default state, you do not need to uninstall PhraseExpress. You can reset the configuration to system defaults.

To permanently remove PhraseExpress:
  1. Deregister any license key, allowing you to reuse the license key for another installation.
  2. Right-click the PhraseExpress tray icon and select Exit.
  3. Press the Windows-key (which is left to the space bar) on your keyboard.
  4. Type "Program and Features" in the search box and select the corresponding entry from the list of found items.
  5. In "Program and Features", right-click PhraseExpress in the list of programs and select Uninstall.

If the Uninstaller tells that PhraseExpress is still running while there is no PhraseExpress tray icon visible, press CTRL+SHIFT+ESC to open the task manager, click Details, switch to the tab Processes, select the process 'phraseexpress.exe' and end the process.

The uninstallation routine does not delete phrase files to prevent accidental data loss. If you do not need the phrase file anymore, delete them in the Windows file explorer.
