need help here! removing non addon file addons

i installed some addons that don’t go into the addons file. now i don’t like them and i have no idea how to remove them. reinstalling doesn’'t work!

how can i fix this?

rename your steam/your username/games/garrysmod/garrysmod folder

rename? why would that work? and to what should i rename it?

renaming it makes gmod reinstall the “vanilla” gmod. thus without any addons. while you still have the addons saved on you pc so you can move them to the new folder

good i got it renamed. so now just start the game?

edit: got it thanks
