If a complete, clean uninstall is what you desire, here are three steps you need to carry out: killing the app – deleting the app – removing app leftovers. We summarize four questions asked frequently on the Internet, and offers the solutions to figure them out.

Question 1: what should you do before the uninstall?

Typically, the most possible reason why users fail to trash an app is that the app is still active. If you encounter an error 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, take either of the options to shut it down:

(1) Locate the app icon in the menu bar, click on it and choose Quit [app name];

(2) If you install the app via Mac App Store, you can uninstall it via Launchpad:

  • Head to Launchpad from the Dock, through Spotlight, or by gesture shortcut
  • Locate the app, then press and hold the app icon until it starts to jiggle
  • Cick the X icon on the upper left corner of the icon, and click Delete button
