Installing an application on a Windows PC or on a Mac, are two pretty similar actions, despite the fact that both computers are using different extensions and other installation algorithms and, if you previously used a Windows PC, then you might find the Mac OS X computer a little harder to control, but after a while you get used to it. However, if you wish to uninstall a program from your system, then this might get a little tricky and that’s why I’ve created this post.

This articles contains a guide that will teach you how you can get rid of an application from Mac OS X easily and fast. So, if you wish to learn how to do it, then you should follow the steps listed below:

  1. First thing to do is to double click the “Macintosh HD’ on the Mac’s desktop.

  2. Now the Mac computer will show several contents, like the System, Application and Library files.

  3. Now you should double-click ‘Applications’, which will open all the software programs you have currently installed on your Mac OS X computer.

  4. Browse the Applications list and when you found the program you wish to remove, press CTRL and hold it, until you notice the menu with options and actions that the Mac allows you to perform.

  5. Click ‘Move to trash’ and the program you selected will be removed.
