    Hello All-

    On my hard drive under applications I have a folder which says GarageBand 5.1, double clicking it opens GarageBand 5.1.app, dbl click that opens GarageBand'09 (v.5.1) application.

    Under the GarageBand 5.1 folder I have an icon of a guitar & amp which says GarageBand.app, dbl clicking that opens the application GarageBand (v. 10.1.0)

    It looks to me I have two distinct GarageBand applications on my HD. If so, how can I uninstal the 5.1 app and retain the 10.1.0 application?

    Thanks for any help with this,

    Close the app, move the GarageBand.app to trash from Applications folder if you installed it in there.

    Just hold it and swipe it to garbage box "Trash"

    Do you mean:
    That's too easy, that can't be good so I didn't do it
    or:
    That was easy! it's strange how easy it is to delete apps.

    To uninstall completely any software, you can use two apps that are efficient in this process. One is AppCleaner, the other is EasyFind that helps to clean the leftovers.
