    Applications create preference files named "plist" that store configurations. They are very small, but the do usually get left behind in uninstalls. That happened to you, most likely. If it bugs you, get Appcleaner, reinstall V18, then drag it to Appcleaner and the plist should be deleted. Then reinstall V17 and it should be factory default again.

    Try AppCleaner, https://freemacsoft.net/appcleaner/. Install v18 again after you install and setup AppCleaner. Make sure AppCleaner is running and then uninstall v18 again.

    You will have to bear with me on this i am afraid.
    I have the free version of Appcleaner and will have to buy the full version to completely remove an app and all its traces ?
    Is that correct.?

    I am trying to remove Vox but it does seem to want to go.
    I drag the icon from the apps folder to Trash but it just comes straight back out again.
    When i try with Appcleaner there is a locked padlock next to the Vox icon.

    You didn't download the app from the App Store, did you? That app is from a different vendor, get the app from the link in my previous post (post # 47). You should not need to pay to use it.

    Some APPs leave Plist and Library Files behind. Generally pretty easy to locate and then just drag to Trash

    Edit: didn't see the other posts. Carry on . . .
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    What do you guys think of the app uninstaller feature that came with OS X Sierra? I have used it several times by accessing the "manage" tab in the system info window under "Storage". Even though it makes it seam as though the app is completely uninstalled from my Mac I am not entirely sure if it does so.
