Hello Everyone,

I am still a PC User who is dying to switch to Mac. I am actually switching in a few months.... I am soon going o be taking some training courses on OS 10.3. My big question (at least for this minute) is how do you uninstall applications? I also heard that when uninstalling something the default way (whatever that must be???) some files were left over.....


Any advice???

Usually you just drag it to the trash.

A lot of programs come with uninstallers. If not.. just drag it to the trash :p

Basically everything for the program comes in a folder so you can delete the whole folder, and it's gone. They do sometimes put information files in your Library, a simple Finder Search will help in removing those.

Inside the folder of the program you wish to uninstall or even sometimes found just lying around the Applications folder. (sometimes just a text file telling you what to delete and where it is)
