Macintosh OS/How To Uninstall Software

Question
Hi Jeff,

How do you uninstall Mac OS X 10.5.8 Leopard?


Sincerely,
Angel

Answer
Angel,

The simplest way for most software is just to drag it into the trash.

To really clean out all of an application (which leave some small pieces in some other directories) I might suggest the free AppCleaner: http://www.freemacsoft.net/appcleaner/

Last, some software requires it's own uninstaller, but this is usually not the case.

Hope that helps!

Expertise

I can comfortably answer most basic/advanced questions regarding Macintosh hardware and software - nowadays only OSX. In fact, if it's prior to 10.3, there's a good chance I'll reject your question. Forget OS9 stuff - Igave up OS 9 ten years ago). Please do not ask me about OS9. My particular specialties are in Video editing/DVD authoring. I am a certified trainer in the "pro apps" (Final Cut, DVDSP, Soundtrack, Motion). I have been using Macs since 1985.

Experience
