I have Ubuntu 17.10, with GNOME Shell, and I have installed this extension. Now I am unable to turn it off or uninstall it.

I have tried to uninstall it from the extensions.gnome.org website (Installed Extensions -> clicking on the red cross), the extension is still there.

I have tried to remove $HOME/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/windowList and restarting (open the run dialog with Alt+F2, and enter restart), the extension is still there.

How can I remove it?

I have found the way

sudo rm -R /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/window-list@gnome-shell-extensions.gcampax.github.com/

For some reason it gets installed system-wide
