Uninstall games on origin

★★ Novice

Hi! I recently bought the sims 4 and wanted to sell my sims 3 game (I have the physical copy) and I cannot find how to uninstall a game on Origin. I know how to uninstall from my computer, but is it possible to remove the code from my origin account?
Thank you

@Maxou2022 Hi, there's no way to remove the game from an account or "free" up the code for resale. PC games generally can't be resold, the discs are just a delivery system for the game data. The game ownership is tied to the code itself, which can only be used once. 

Thanks for the post, I hope this information clears things up.

If you right click on the game (in your library) you should be able to click remove from library.
