    Hi guys, I came from developer preview, and because of that I think, my mac auto downloaded the new 10.10.2 beta update from app store, and its asking me if i want to install it now, or postpone. I don't want to install beta on my mac anymore, so how do I delete this already downloaded firmware? I already disabled auto download now, so that part has been done. I just need to get rid of this downloaded file.

    Anyone can help?


    EDIT: oh and also, how to stop beta to show up in my Updates section of Mac app store.

    As to your last part, stopping updates from showing.
    right+click on the update and select "Hide"

    Do a Spotlight search for it, and drag it to the trash.

    Thanks for your help, but I did that, but it's not hiding for some reason? It registered the click, but doesn't do anything when I click the Hide button.


    Thanks for your help. What should I search for? I tried searching for key words shown in the update description, but it's not showing up in spotlight..

    Use these instructions to deregister your system from the beta programme.
