Over time you’re likely to some using some of the programs that are installed on your Mac – and when you do it is always best to remove them rather than let them continue to take up space on your hard drive. In most cases removing programs on a Mac is simple, and all you need to do is drag the icon to the Trash.
However unfortunately that method of removing programs does not work in all cases – especially native OS X apps as well as other programs that may not have icons. On top of that removing programs in this fashion can sometimes result in some files being left behind as well – which will eventually pile up.
While there are several ways to remove programs through other means on a Mac, most tend to be complicated and some even require the use of the command prompt. Rather than that, the easiest way to learn how to delete apps on Mac is by using Movavi Mac Cleaner to do so.
Within Movavi Mac Cleaner you’ll find an ‘Uninstaller’ feature that can be used to remove programs from your Mac. Unlike other methods, this ‘Uninstaller’ can remove all programs – including native OS X apps and programs that may not have icons. At the same time it will ensure no leftovers remain when apps are removed, and indeed is able to track down leftovers from apps that were uninstalled in the past and remove them too.
To use the ‘Uninstaller’ in Movavi Mac Cleaner you should first launch the software and let the automatic scan finish. Once it does you can select the ‘Uninstaller’ feature on the left, and it will then scan your Mac to identify the programs that are uninstalled. As soon as that scan is finished you’ll see a list with tabs for ‘User Apps’, ‘OS X Apps’ and ‘Leftovers’ and you can check the boxes near any of the apps listed and click ‘Remove’ to delete them.
As you can see it is possible to quickly remove programs from a Mac via this method, and the same can be said of cleaning your Mac in general with Movavi Mac Cleaner. It will provide you with the tools you need to quickly clean out unnecessary files, and also has other features such as a shredder, antivirus, firewall, and much more.
Considering Movavi Mac Cleaner makes it so easy to remove programs from your Mac, it is definitely preferable to remove any that you are no longer using. By doing so you’ll be able to ensure your hard drive doesn’t get too full to the point where it may end up affecting your Mac’s performance.
