Conventional Steps to Fully Uninstall NicePlayer

Uninstalling most apps on Mac OS X is much easier than on Windows. But, a simple drag-to-delete move may not be able to remove all the components of the app you wanna trash. Most Mac apps are self-contained but some of them may leave hidden files around your system.

To perform a clean uninstall, please follow the instructions step by step. But if you wanna uninstall NicePlayer as simple & swift as possible, just scroll down to this section: Remove NicePlayer Using Professional Uninstaller to solve it quickly.

  • Locate the Utilities folder in launchpad, and click Activity Monitor from this folder.
  • Select NicePlayer and click Quit Process icon in the upper left corner of the window.
  • Click Quit in the pop-up dialog box to confirm. If you are told that NicePlayer cannot be terminated, then try the Force Quit option in the dialog again.

Step 2. Uninstall NicePlayer

Make sure that you have logged into your Mac with an administrator account, and you may be asked for a password when you try to delete something in the Finder.

(1) Standard way of uninstalling 3rd party apps:

  • Open the Finder and click Applications on the left panel to open Applications folder.
  • Scroll down to locate NicePlayer, and drag NicePlayer icon to the Trash in the dock. Or you can right-click the app and choose Move to Trash option from the list.

This is the most intuitive and commonly used approach for removing apps for OS X. However, it will only remove the app files but not any other resources it may set up. So after that, you will need to proceed with the next step – deleting app residuals.

(2) Alternative option (for the apps that are installed from App Store):

  • Click Launchpad in the dock, and then input the app name in the search box at the top.


  • Hold on the app icon until it begins to wiggle and shows “X” in the upper left corner.
  • Tap the “X” icon in the left top corner and target app will be removed instantly.


Step 3. Delete NicePlayer Remains

As is mentioned before, it is the lingering files/folders NicePlayer creates and hide on your system that makes this app difficult to be uninstalled entirely. Though Mac has not a Windows-like registry, the preferences settings, cache files, and supporting extensions for each app are stored in the Library section. If you don’t intend to use NicePlayer any more, it is wise to clean out those junk files to free up disk space.

  • Open the Finder, click the “Go” from the Menu Bar, select the entry:|Go to Folder… in the list and then enter the path of the Application Support folder: ~/Library

    ~/Library/Application Support/
    ~/Library/Caches/ folders
  • Right click on the matched items and choose Move to Trash option to delete them.

Tip: Generally, each app has a .plist text file containing your preferences. Some applications may also install startup items, receipt, or extensions, which may be found in the /Library/StartupItems/, /Library/LaunchAgents/, /Library/LaunchDaemons/, /Library/Receipts/, and /Library/Extensions folders. The best quick way to track those files down is to do a Finder search using the application name or the developer name as the search term. If you are not sure whether a file belongs to NicePlayer, it might be helpful to do a web search about NicePlayer components. Advanced users can use Terminal to list the contents of the directory in question and delete the offending item.

Step 4. Empty the Trash

After deleting NicePlayer and its components to the Trash, the last thing you need to do is to empty the Trash. Notice: the act of emptying the Trash is irrevocable, and everything in the Trash will be deleted immediately. Before emptying the Trash, please make sure you haven’t mistakenly delete anything there.

  • Right click on the Trash icon in the dock.
  • Choose Empty Trash and click OK in the pop-up dialog.

  • Alternatively, you can empty the Trash by choosing the Empty Trash under the Finder menu. In case you cannot empty the Trash, reboot your Mac and do it again.
  • If you change your mind about deleting the item before you choose Empty Trash, you can right click on the items in the Trash and choose Put Back option.
