Manually delete apps on a Mac:
For this, first you have to open Finder and then just select Applications. After this, you have to select the app which you want to uninstall and then you can either drag it to the Trash or you can select Move to Trash. Now, you should remove the app’s residual files. For this, you should open up the Library, normally which Apple keeps hidden. So, if you want to find your Library, then you should hold down command and then space bar just to open Spotlight Search. Here, you should enter “Library” and then open the folder. Always, keep in mind that you can search the Library for any leftover files. You just have to type the app’s name into the search field just to look if there are any leftover files which scattered across different folders. Generally, advanced users know that the Library has lots of folders which contain leftover app data and also the service files.
If in case, you want to search for leftover files, then you should check the subfolders in the Library to find the remaining apps: Application Scripts, Application Support, Caches, Containers, Cookies, Logs, and Preferences. Here, you should be careful not to delete anything other than leftover app data, because something can be damaged just by deleting other important files in your Library. Then, you should move all the leftover app files which you find to the Trash. At last, you should not forget to empty the Trash.
First, you should hold down command and also the space bar and then just enter “uninstall” to look the options which you have. Now, you should open the uninstaller. Then, you should click on Uninstall option.
Now, the uninstaller will delete the app and files and leftover data. But uninstallers are not very thorough. So, if you want to truly root out all the digital leftovers, then you should use a dedicated cleanup app.
