guys how do u uninstall a program on the mac. im a recent switcher and dont know what to do !?!?
All you need to do is drag the application into the trash.
sure ?!?! so easy ? arent there any `left-outs` on the mac ? some ppl say that i need a special application called `zap` in order to uninstall completely the program ?
Or you can download an app called "Appcleaner" which deletes all the related preferences with that app you want to delete.
Unless it came with an uninstaller.
well actually its a internet plug-inn called `veetle`
Then, I think you have to search on the Safari preferences, and maybe there is a place to uninstall it. Or it could be in the system preferences.
nothing in safari preferences. ( this veetle plug in is now in my library next to the initially installed java plug-in flash plug-in which come with the mac. cant i just move it to the thrash from there ?
Go to the HD, then Library, then Internet Plug-Ins. There should be something with the name of veetle, which is the plug-in. Just drag that to the trash and it should uninstall.
thanks man it worked just fine. so, basically we dont need apps like `appcleaner`
You don't need Appcleaner, I only use it because preferences are saved in the Library, and It deletes them while also deleting the app, but you can do it manually also.
I've got the same problem. I used to have veetle, thought I'd removed it, now want it again and the dmg installer for veetle won't install as it says there's already veetle installed.
I've tried searching and this has been going on for about a year!
A few days old but oh well. I did what the one of the posts said, but it couldn't remove Veetle completely because I don't have as much space as I did before. Any other suggestions?
Best way to FULLY DELETE a program
Take a look at DiskInventory X, OmniDiskSweeper, JDisk Report or GrandPerspective to see where your HDD space went to.
