Master the Art of Uninstalling Apps on Your Mac in 5 Easy Steps


Uninstalling apps on a Mac is a straightforward process. The following are five simple tasks to become amazing at uninstalling apps on your Mac:

Prior to uninstalling an application, ensure it is not running. Go to the application's menu and select "Quit [App Name]" or utilize the Order + Q console easy route to totally leave the application.

Find the application you need to uninstall. Most apps are stored in the Applications folder, which can be accessed by clicking on the Finder icon in the dock, selecting "Applications" in the sidebar, and then browsing through the list of installed applications.


Step 3: Move the App to Trash

Whenever you've found the application, you need to uninstall, just simplified it to the Junk symbol in the dock. Alternatively, you can right-click on the app and select "Move to Trash" from the context menu.


Step 4: Empty the Trash

After moving the application to the Junk, the application isn't totally uninstalled. To let loose space and eliminate it forever, right-click on the Junk symbol and select "Empty Trash." Affirm the activity by tapping on "Empty Trash" in the dialog box.


Step 5: Confirm Uninstallation

At times, certain apps might abandon extra documents, inclinations, or reserves even after being moved to the Trash. If you want to ensure a thorough uninstallation, you can use a third-party uninstaller application like AppCleaner, which helps you find and remove all associated files. This step is optional but recommended for complete app removal.
