After some time you may well find that you no longer use some of the apps that you’d installed on your Mac. It is only normal that happens, but when it does it is important that you remove the apps so that they don’t just sit on your hard drive, take up space, and sap valuable resources.
While you may occasionally uninstall apps through the conventional method, the one problem with that is it often doesn’t completely remove all the files from that app. As such your Mac may end up with quite a bit of junk on it that consists of leftovers from apps that weren’t completely uninstalled.
If you want to truly clean out unused apps and make sure that no trace of them is left behind – Movavi Mac Cleaner can help. Although its main feature is cleaning out junk from your Mac’s hard drive, it also comes with an ‘Uninstaller’ that is capable of removing apps cleanly in just a few steps:
- Launch Movavi Mac Cleaner (and wait for the automatic scan to finish).
- Select the ‘Uninstaller’ in the menu.
- Choose any app you want to remove and click the checkbox beside it.
- Click ‘Remove’ to uninstall the app.
While you’re in the ‘Uninstaller’ feature you’ll notice one or two things that make it stand out. Firstly it has a ‘Leftovers’ section that will detect any leftovers from apps that you installed in the past and let you remove them. Secondly it also has an ‘OS X apps’ section that will allow you to uninstall any native OS X apps that you no longer require – which is normally not possible.
In addition to all these capabilities, Movavi Mac Cleaner also includes a ‘Shredder’ that can help you to remove confidential files so that they can’t be recovered. It also comes with its very own antivirus and firewall so that you will be protected from any online threats, viruses and malware.
Long story short, you now know how to uninstall apps on Mac in a way that ensures they are completely gone. Add to that the other useful features of Movavi Mac Cleaner and you should be able to easily and conveniently maintain your Mac so that it doesn’t start to get sluggish or dip in its performance levels – even as time goes by.
