Uninstall Software

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I downloaded the trial version of iWork, but because of my job its going to be much easier if I just use Office. So since I don't need iWork and I don't want it taking up hard drive space how I can uninstall it? I can't find any information about removing software/applications anywhere.

1) Drag the iWork folder to the Trash
2) Empty the Trash

Strangle enough I've had someone else ask me this. I had to explain to them the Mac was that simple. You trash the app and that's it. They sort of didn't believe me: "But it couldn't be that easy?"

For the record; it is that easy.

If you're worried about various bits and pieces lingering in the system (pref files etc), you might want to check out AppZapper.

Takes up 2Mb of disk space and makes a really cool noise as well. Lightweight and gorgeous.

CleanApp is another good uninstaller. It is getting better with each release. One caveat though . . . Unless I am mistaken, it only recognizes programs that are installed in the official OSX "Applications" folder. Install apps there, and CleanApp will log the installation, and then find everything if you ever need to uninstall an app. Also, it will uninstall entire folders full of files. In other words, where the app is actually located. It moves the enclosing folder to the trash, and everything in it.
