Mac (Macintosh computers) are the favorite PC podium of most people, especially those in fashion, arts, graphics and multimedia business sectors. Whether you’re a first timer or a periodic Mac user, a point would most likely occur that you’ll need to uninstall several programs in it. Even if you’re a computer user and not used with the Mac setting, you can instantly learn how to uninstall programs on Mac.
First, you need to make sure the Mac PC is on, and you have closed all running programs. On the desktop find your hard drive icon. General, non-personalized systems would simply appear “Macintosh HD” in the icon; but then, if the PC owner or user has custom-made their Mac’s space, it would have a different name. Regardless of how the icon looks, it appears the same, a small, silver metal rectangle that looks like a piece of PC material.
Click the “Applications” folder after you have viewed the hard drive contents of the Mac. The Apps folder has all the programs installed on the computer.
You need to scan the list of accessible applications to find the one you need to uninstall programs on Mac. There are two means to uninstall the file once you’ve located it. One choice is clicking while holding the Ctrl key once to choose the file, a small menu will appear. Choose “Move to Trash”. You also have the option to find the program in the Applications folder, select it, and draw it to the Trash or Recycle Bin on the desktop.
For fully uninstalling programs on Mac, make sure that you have removed all files linked with the program, in case they are separated in the Applications folder, use “Ctrl+F” and use the correct keywords to locate the name of the file. Any result will reveal the location setting of the file associated with it. You can now select each file in the designated folder and then delete.
Deleting the file shortcuts, preferences, and supporting files installed along with the file is a manual procedure in your Mac computer. However if you find it too bothersome, it is better that you use a third-party uninstaller tool to uninstall both the non-bundled files on your Mac PC and absolve associated programs from your hard disk all at once. Some tools are simple to use and come with choice features that let you select a list of programs from which you can view the ones you want to delete, same with Windows Add/Remove Programs tool. While bearing in mind the third-party tools look for freeware and open source mechanics. Some of these even have excellent results and help you uninstall files on Mac computer without draining your budget.
