Part 2 of 3: Deleting Support and Preference Files

  1. Open the Library folder. Even though the program has been deleted, there may be lingering files left on the hard drive. These preference files are usually pretty small, and can be worth keeping if you end up reinstalling the application. If you aren't planning on ever using the program again, you can remove these files permanently.
    • You can open the Library folder by holding the Option key and clicking the "Go" menu. The Library option should appear in the menu.

    Find the files you want to remove. Look for any files or folders with the program's name or developer's name in the ~/Library/, ~/Library/Preferences/, and ~/Library/Application Support/ folders.

  3. 7

    Move any files or folders that you find to the Trash. Empty the Trash to delete the files. If you can’t empty the Trash, reboot the computer and try again.
