Don’t forget to Delete Spotflux Leftovers…

Uninstalling apps on Mac is quite simple and intuitive if you are familiar with the process. But you should also know that, deleting an app through the Trash does not guarantee a 100% uninstall effect as some of the app components may still linger around your system. So to totally get rid of Spotflux, continue with the steps below:

  • Open the Finder, click the Go from the Menu Bar, and select Go to Folder…
  • Type the path of the top level Library on hard disk: /Library, and hit Enter key.

go to library -

Library -

Search for the files or folders which contains the name of Spotflux or the vendor in the following locations and then delete them: /Library, /Library/Caches, /Library/Preferences, /Library/Application Support, /Library/LaunchAgents, /Library/LaunchDaemons, /Library/PreferencePanes, /Library/StartupItems

Warming: Mistakenly deleting items from Library might have influence on your other apps or even system, so make sure to verify the files before deleting them.

It could be time-wasting going through each folder and searching for app leftovers. Luckily, you can make use of the Search in Finder to hunt down associated files:

  • Go ahead to open up the user library inside home folder: ~/Library.
  • Type Spotflux in the Search Bar, and click on Library again.
  •  Identify the matched items, right click on them and choose Move to Trash option.

If there are still some files you fail to locate or identify, do a web search about the app components. Besides, advanced users can utilize the Terminal (located in /Utilities folder) to list the contents of the directory in question and then delete offending items.

Finally, empty the Trash to permanently delete all Spotflux components.
