Reinstalling XAMPP

Hello there fellow XAMPP users!

I'm in need of help here and perhaps someone in this forum can help me out.

I'm using XAMPP for wordpress, but along the way I seem to have messed up.
So here's the thing, I'm trying to reinstall XAMPP so that I can have a totally fresh and untouched version.
I move XAMPP to the trash and empty it, and when reinstall it, I can still find wordpress in it (htdocs). Why is this? Is there another way one can delete XAMPP completely?

I have tried some of the suggestions in the following link but doesen't work for me.

I would greatly appreciate if anyone could help me figure it out!

For some reasons, you installed XAMPP-VM (VM = Virtual Machine), which does not install to your local file system, but to a virtual file system. Deinstall that installation and download one of the many "normal" installers which install to your file system.
