How to Uninstall Unwanted Apps on a Mac

At first glance it often seems as though uninstalling unwanted apps on a Mac is really very easy. All that you need to do is drag the app over to your trash bin and it will delete it. Unfortunately as most Mac users soon realize that method is far from perfect and not only will you have problems uninstalling certain apps, but you will also find that leftovers remain from some of the apps that you’ve uninstalled.

Rather than letting leftovers and apps that can’t be uninstalled linger on your hard drive and start to sap valuable resources – there is another way to uninstall unwanted apps: Use Movavi Mac Cleaner to do so. It is a useful software that is designed to help clean unnecessary files from your Mac’s hard drive and one of its best features is its ‘Uninstaller’.

When you use the Uninstaller to delete unwanted apps you can rest assured that no leftovers will remain. More importantly, the feature is able to remove any and all apps – including ‘native’ OS X apps that are notorious for being close to impossible to uninstall.

To remove programs from Mac all you have to do is:

  1. Launch Movavi Mac Cleaner.
  2. Click on the ‘Uninstaller’ tab.
  3. Select ‘User Apps’ to find apps that were installed by users, ‘OS X Apps’ to find native apps that came as part of OS X, or ‘Leftovers’ to locate leftovers from apps that were uninstalled previously.
  4. Tick the checkbox next to the app you want to uninstall.
  5. Click ‘Remove’ to uninstall the app.

As you can see it really is very straightforward and will let you remove all types of apps and leftovers from apps with ease. On top of that if you take advantage of the other features of Movavi Mac Cleaner to clean out the junk files from your Mac at the same time – you should end up freeing up even more space on your hard drive. The ‘Shredder’ feature may prove useful too in order to remove confidential business or work files without leaving any traces behind.

To put it simply, with the help of Movavi Mac Cleaner you should be able to quickly and effectively uninstall any apps you want to. When you do, you can be certain there’ll be no leftovers remaining and your Mac should perform much better in the long term as a result.
