    Hi, I have installed Alfred but I think I don't need it anymore. How do I completely remove it from my computer?

    Delete the app itself from the /Applications folder, then also the files/folders in bold below.

    ~/Library is your user Library folder you can access by opening Finder then holding the option key while you click the Go menu.

    Code:
    ~/Library/Caches/[B]com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2[/B]
    ~/Library/Caches/[B]com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-Preferences[/B]
    ~/Library/Application Support/[B]Alfred 2[/B]
    ~/Library/Preferences/[B]com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2.plist[/B]
    ~/Library/Preferences/[B]com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-Preferences.plist[/B]

    FYI:

    This is another effective method for completely deleting an app, leaving nothing behind.
