Thread: Uninstall software on a mac?
05-22-2006, 06:09 PM #1doox00GuestUninstall software on a mac?
How do I properly uninstall software on a mac? I just installed Virtual PC, and I want to uninstall it, just go to applications and drag it to the trash? seems to simple to me and seems it would leave stuff behind. This is my first mac and I am learning how to use it.. any other way to uninstall software?

Yup thats it. If you are anal like me you can open up a finder window and type in virtual pc. Then delete the preference files too but they are small and it wont really matter if you leave them. I never installed virtual pc so im not sure where it puts windows when it installs. But you could do a search for that too and drag them to the trash if they are still there.

There are some Apps that will come with an unistaller App (MS OFfice is an example) but most don't. You drag and drop to the trash.

Does anyone else find it ironic that just about the only programs out there that scatter themselves all over the hard-drive and require an unistaller are Microsoft ones - just like they all do on Windows? They're not happy just trashing their own operating systems, they have to mess up OSX too with their silly programming styles. I do, however, like Mac:Office 2004 even with its scattering.
