    Angry What is "Wish" and how do I get rid of it?
    In my Launchpad, there is an app called "Wish". The icon is just a blue feather, and when I start it, it pulls up a blank console. No one who uses this computer knows what it is or where it came from. It's not in the applications folder nor does it come up in any sort of search. Does anyone use this app, know what it is, or more importantly know how to get rid of it?

    The computer is an iMac running OS X 10.7.5 if that helps.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help with this!

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 3.3GHz, 512GB Flash, 16GB memory, OS X.11.4.
    There is an E Commerce application named 'Wish'. Does not appear in your Application Folder? Drag it off the Dock and see if goes Poof.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    It's not on my dock, it's only in my launchpad, but it doesn't appear anywhere else on my computer as far as I know.

    Sometimes certain applications perform more than one function and each of those functions may show up in Launchpad as a separate icon. I have several of those types of apps in my Launchpad. You're just going to have to try to dig around in your applications to see which one placed that icon there. It may be part of another app that you do use so be careful about removing it.
