How to delete an extension manually?

燕鹏 李 281 Reputation points

My Visual studio is the lastest version. I installed the Wix toolset Visual Studio 2022 Extension, but it didn't work, so I consider this extension broken. But I cannot uninstall it from visual studio, is there a way to delete it manually?

    Per-user and administrative extensions
    Most extensions are per-user and are installed in the ** %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\<Visual Studio version>\Extensions\ ** folder. A few extensions are administrative extensions and are installed in the ** <Visual Studio installation folder>\Common7\IDE\Extensions\ ** folder.
