Having troubles in deleting Voxal from your Mac? Looking for a proper way to uninstall Voxal and remove all its traces? Read through this post and find the answers.
According to the vendor’s How To Uninstall page, users can easily uninstall Voxal on Mac by trashing it from the Applications folder in Finder. But the page does not involve how to fully remove the remaining components from other system directories. To have a clean uninstall, you should know how to detect and delete app remnants.
In this post we discuss 4 issues that should be noticed during the app removal on Mac.
You may have known that, an app will not be trashed if it is currently active. If you try to trash Vocal but are prompted by a message saying that the app cannot be trashed, just 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;
(3) Press Command – Option – ESC(Escape) to bring up the Force Quit Applications window, select the app you want to stop running, and click Force Quit button
Besides, don’t forget to remove this app from Dock by right-clicking on it and choosing Options > Remove from Dock.
Here are the manual steps to delete Voxal from the /Applications folder and Trash:
