How To Remove QTTabGroup Popup

A while ago I installed a program called QTTabBar“.

It adds extra functions to Explorer like tab browsing. I don’t remember my reasons for uninstalling it but it seems to have left a bit of itself behind. Every time I turned on my computer I got a popup asking “How do you want to open this file?


I found out through some research that it puts an entry in the following folder (Note: Replace my name with your own account name):

C:\Users\Terry\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

You will need to set File Explorer to see hidden files first. Read here.

I went to the folder and found the entry called “QTTabBar Desktop Extension StartUp.QTTabGroup”. I right-clicked on it and selected Delete from the menu, then restarted my system to make sure it was gone.

It’s gone.

  1. Perhaps if you had used RevoUninstaller to uninstall the app, you would not have had this issue.
