If you have an application you no longer use or you have an application, which is not stable – you should uninstall applications in Mac. By uninstalling applications in Mac, you can not only free up some disk space (usually negligible), but importantly free up some disk space and reduce clutter in the Applications folder as well as desktop or other places where you store the shortcuts.

To uninstall applications in Mac, in most cases, you will need to be logged on to the Mac OS X with an administrator account or the account, which installed the application. Once you’ve uninstalled an application, the only way to restore the application is to reinstall it. If you send the application to the Trash, and that was the most recent operation performed, click

Finder -> Edit -> “Undo Move of Application” (* – Application is the name of the application you want to restore)

Also, you can use the Trash folder to click and drag the application and drop it to Applications.

How to Uninstall Applications in Mac

1. Go to Applications (or go via Finder -> Applications)

2. Click the application you want to uninstall and simply drag it to the Trash.
