MacKeeper at Your Service to Uninstall Programs on Mac
Completely uninstall your
Mac programs now
From time to time the need to clean up your Mac arises. You think that it’s time to dispose of the old documents and applications you once downloaded and never used. However, such clean-up is necessary for your Mac as well. Most of us are used to deleting files using the drag-and-drop functionality. If you have seriously set your mind on deliverance of your Mac from unnecessary applications, this approach might not work. The thing is that some apps when trashed leave a lot of odds and ends on the hard drive. Therefore, you need to go the extra mile to purge them the right way.
How to Correctly Uninstall Program (Mac)
When trashed, some programs are completely deleted, and some are not. The reason behind this difference is that there are actually two types of applications on your Mac. They are bundles and applications proper. A bundle (anything that ends in .app) is a special folder itself which contains all or most of the program’s components. When you drag it to the Trash, you delete the whole program.
However, when you deal with applications proper, they are not located in one place. So if the core part is ditched, different preference, cache and log files remain. To get rid of these files, you can go to the "Application Support" folder and manually trash them too. For programs such as GarageBand and DVD Studio Pro this will liberate a few gigabytes of space on your Mac. In any case there is a drawback to this approach. Firstly, some files may be invisible for you. Secondly, some application suites share code between their apps, and deleting components of one app may make other apps inoperable.
The following steps will help you dispose of apps on your Mac:
When the Trash is emptied after an app was dragged to it, some of its components still take space on disk. These components are:
- - logs
- - configs
- - preferences
Smart Uninstaller allows you to completely remove:
- - applications
- - widgets
- - plugins
- - preferences panes
An All-Inclusive Way to Uninstall Programs (Mac)
Unfortunately, Mac OS X doesn't have an incorporated uninstaller. As you can see, dumping files to the Trash and emptying it afterwards is not the best option as well. So if your app doesn't go together with its own uninstaller, you should employ a specialized uninstaller to completely get rid of the app. Many Mac system utilities offer this service. Their main advantage over the manual search and deletion of files is displaying a complete list of all components of a particular application. You can also view how much volume these program items take and assess which of them should be ditched.
