Use PIP to Delete or Uninstall Pygame

We install modules and libraries with PIP and delete them with it. Open a command line of your choice and type in the following command.

pip uninstall pygame

After hitting Enter, it will show you all files which will be deleted, and you have to agree by pressing Y and hitting Enter.

Found existing installation: pygame 2.0.1
Uninstalling pygame-2.0.1:
  Would remove:
    c:\program files\python39\include\pygame\_camera.h
    c:\program files\python39\include\pygame\_pygame.h
    and so on ...
Proceed (Y/n)?

After this, Pygame should be deleted from your system. And a fresh install can be made with the following:
