Remove certain External Tools from Power BI Desktop

Hi,

 

Anyone know how to remove the External Tools shorcuts from Power BI Desktop?

I went on an installing rampage, and now want to remove those I would not use.

 

Perhaps a file or text file that holds that data that one can edit?

 

Regards,
Jacques

Unfortunately there was no uninstall option...

 

But I found the solution, thanks to a recent MS post:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/transform-model/desktop-external-tools 

 

I just removed the JSON file and then after reopening Power BI it was removed!
