How to uninstall games?

I know this is a really nooby question, but I've overloaded my Oblivion with mods so much to the point where lag is immense, and I just want to completely restart. I can't seem to find any kind of "uninstall" button or anything in the Steam client, so I deleted the "Oblivion" folder in "Steam/Steamapps/common/Oblivion". I hope I didn't screw it over or anything..

You can right click on the game in your Steam library then select 'Delete local cotent'. Or you can uninstall from Add/remove programs (is that what it's called?) in control panel.

I wouldn't mess with add/remove programs with Steam games.

Use the Steam interface or delete the folder.

If you use add/remove programs it just open steam and uninstalls them through it anyway.

if you only want to clean your oblivion install you don't need to completely uninstall it go to the data directory and erase all except the .BSA files. Then go to the game at steam and verify its integrity to redownload the needed files.
