How to remove system-wide gnome extensions in Silverblue 35?

I have tried to remove some of the system-wide extensions installed in Fedora Silverblue 35, instead of just disabling them. But if I use for example the command

rpm-ostree remove gnome-shell-extension-window-list

what I always get is the message

error: Package/capability ‘gnome-shell-extension-window-list’ is not currently requested

I know there must be a way to remove those system-wide extensions that I don’t want without touching those that I do. Any suggestion?

Hello @boricua ,
I don’t understand the impetus but try this link ( to dig into your question. Happy hacking! :grinning:

I know, I know. It’s my OCD in action. I could simply leave them turned off. :crazy_face:
Thanks for the info.
Edit: I’m afraid this info does not apply to Silverblue. :grimacing:

sudo rpm-ostree override remove gnome-shell-extension-<name>

Thanks. This actually works, but first I needed to remove gnome-classic-session. Then I was able to remove the unwanted extensions.

Wxtensions are in .local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/
Just delete the content of .local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/ with rm -R
