Whenever you install a Xamarin component into an App project, it gets placed in two places:

  1. In a Components folder at the root level of your Solution folder. If you remove the Component from all projects in the solution, it will get removed from this folder as well.

  2. A copy is also stored in the following locations:

    • Windows: %LocalAppData%\Xamarin\Cache\Components
    • Mac: ~/Library/Caches/Xamarin/Components

So to remove a component completely from your system, delete it from your projects/solutions and from the cache folder above.

Xamarin Workbook

If it's not already installed, install the Xamarin Workbooks app first. The workbook file should download automatically, but if it doesn't, just click to start the workbook download manually.
