“I downloaded and installed Duet but later realized that it is not compatible with the OS X 10.10.2. Now I need to uninstall Duet and remove all the files associated with Duet. Can anyone help? I have no clue how to detect its remnant on my system.”
As a productive software, Duet for Mac allows you to use your iDevices as an extra display for the Mac using the lightning or 30-pin cable. Yet, some Mas users may encounter problems when using this software, and they need to uninstall Duet to troubleshoot the usage issues. Anyhow, if you are looking for a solution to fully remove Duet on Mac, read through this post to know how to uninstall Duet properly.
If you are using the recent version of Duet (and it is installed normally), you should be able to uninstall it from the Settings panel. Here is how to uninstall Duet on Mac:
Soon your Mac will restart to allow the removal of Duet components. Note that you should save your work on Mac before clicking the Uninstall & Restart Mac button.
But what if there is no Uninstall Duet option in the Settings? Or what if your Duet is damaged and cannot be open to access this option? Try the following methods.
If the aforementioned method does not work, you could still uninstall Duet from Finder’s /Applications folder and Trash. Here are the regular steps to delete Duet:
If you are unable to trash Duet, make sure to shut down the app before the uninstall. To do so, click Duet icon in menu bar and select Settings > Quit. If you cannot open Duet, launch Activity Monitor, select Duet, click the X icon and then Quit button.
Once you thrown Duet into Trash, you can choose Empty Trash from the Finder menu to delete all the items in Trash, but note that it is an irrevocable act and will remove all items there. For the sake of safety, we suggest you to only delete Duet in Trash.
Generally, this trash-to-uninstall method works to uninstall most third party apps on macOS / Mac OS X. But it cannot guarantee a clean uninstall at all. Some app-related items may still remain on the system. So, how to know there is any all Duet remnants?
If you wish to remove all traces and reclaim occupied disk space, you can conduct a detection to see if there is any Duet leftover hidden in your system directories.
You can follow the instructions to access to the hidden ~/Library folder:
In the folder, utilize the Search feature to find out Duet-related files and folders:
You can repeat the same steps to delete Duet leftovers in the top /Library folder. After moving Duet leftovers to the Trash, don’t rush to empty the Trash. If you mistakenly delete irrelevant items, you can still put them back to the original place.
