If you want to achieve a complete, clean uninstall, you should follow these three steps: to quit the app > to delete the app > to remove app leftovers. Hereby we collect 4 questions that are asked frequently by Mac users, and you will find the keys to carry out a thorough removal by exploring the answers to these questions. Read on please.
According to the app vendor, to uninstall ScreenFlow requires users to simply move the ScreenFlow application to the trash. Yet, an active app will not be trashed by this way. If you are prompted by a message saying that the app cannot be trashed, make sure to right click on the app icon that appears in the Dock and choose Quit option.
If the app does not appear in Dock, try the following options to deactivate the process:
(1) Locate the app icon in the menu bar, click on it and choose Quit [app name];
(2) Launch Activity Monitor in Dock, type the app name in the search box, select the process, click X button on the upper left corner, and click Quit in the pop-up dialog;

To do so, right click on ScreenFlow in the Trash, choose Delete Permanently from the sub-menu, and then click Delete button in the pop-up confirmation dialog.
