    How do I get rid of Growl?
    I'm trying to get rid of Growl.

    Checked both the Application and the Utilities folder, don't see Growl anywhere.

    Did a search for Growl - a long list of items shows up but when I narrow it down to "Applications" - nada

    I still found the original .dmg file when I first installed it - it actually has an uninstaller with it - nice!

    but when I try to use that I get:
    You can’t open the application “Uninstall Growl” because PowerPC applications are no longer supported.

    -------------

    As an aside -
    When I upgraded from SnowLeopard to ElCapitan, there was only one application that was identified as not being compatible with ElCapitan.
    No I find more and more applications that were transferred to ElCapitan that are either PowerPC only or where I can't even find the application like with Growl.
    I though migrating from SL to ElCap would have identified all the PowerPC apps.

    Here, try this, Growl - Removing Growl

    I believe, it is on the user to know what OS the apps work with. I wouldn’t trust an OS to know an app won’t work with it.

    When using MA, you tell it what to migrate.

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    Thanks, I think the manual method (shown in the link) to uninstall Growl worked.

    As to the OSs and MA, I wanted MA to migrate everything at the time.
    But it was obvious none of the PowerPC apps would work in ElCap sdo I thought that would be simple enough for MA to identify those.
    For some reason MA identified one app as not being compatible with ElCap, don't even remember what that was; if one why not the others.

    Well, water under the bridge.

    I realize he may only be one person developing that app, but still no 64 bit version. I'm recommending folks use the "Easyfind.app" instead which is already 64 bit and ready for the next version of macOS.

    BTW, the EasyFind app is freeware.

    I do, but it doesn't work that well in this case.
    I ended up with close to 400 hits using FAF
