To install KStars, follow the instructions of the platform you are using for how to install software. Most platforms have a graphical installer which can be used to install software packages. In many cases it will automatically be opened when clicking the download or install link for your platform. There is a generic tutorial for installing KDE applications which also can be applied to KStars.
If you are using Linux, KStars might already be pre-installed on your system as part of a default selection. If not, you can install it with the package management tool of your Linux distribution. See its documentation for details.
To uninstall KStars, follow the instructions of the package management tool you have used to install KStars. This will remove the KStars application. It will not touch data you have viewed, created, or modified with KStars.
