    Hey everyone,

    I was just wondering if it is possible to uninstall Java completely from Mac?

    I used to have Minecraft on a previous Mac of mine and am looking remove everything that is unnecessary, as its only job now is some file storage and watching movies on my tv.

    I found these instructions on the Java website:

    But I am hesitant to follow them as I am not familiar with terminal commands.

    Thank you!

    Those are normal paths, so if you don't wish to use the Terminal, you can just open Finder and use Apple Menu -> Go -> Go to Folder, then enter into each path and delete the files:

    Path: /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/
    Move to Trash: JavaAppletPlugin.plugin

    Path: /Library/PreferencePanes/
    Move to Trash: JavaControlPanel.prefPane

    Path: ~/Library/Application Support/
    Move to Trash: the Java folder
