I wanted to create an Inbox webapp. I tried epiphany and chromium but I wasnt satisfied with both.

Now I want to delete them but I dont know where to find the .desktop files? Can anyone give the locations?

You will find your .desktop files under ~/.local/share/applications/


You can delete Epiphany webapps completely from the browser, in the about:applications page. They also create a browser profile directory in ~/.config/epiphany in addition to the .desktop file, if you have manually removed the .desktop files take also a second to remove the profile dir.


You will also find them in /usr/share/applications

    These are system-wide installed files, not user-made ones.
