    How do I uninstall Team Fortress 2 and all of the things that installed with it?

    Last night I downloaded it, I've been playing for an hour or so and I'm not really liking it much, how do I completely uninstall all content? It was a 12gb download and I deleted all local files through steam and the app and I only gained 45mb of space back?

    Click the Go menu in Finder, press and hold the alt key so the Library option appears. Navigate to the following directory and delete the TF2 folder from it:

    /Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/

    The folder's empty, do any files get installed in obscure locations?

    ----------

    I've still got about 4gb missing now, I know it's not much much but it's kinda annoying

    Check the sourcemods folder in the Steam directory I listed above and delete all the content from there if you've not done so already.

    There's a really easier way that is supported by steam: right click on the tf2 icon/name in steam, and select "delete local content." this will delete it from your library and you computer, and you won't have to worry about it unless you download it again, which you probably won't.

    +1. I believe you even get a confirmation when it's done—just deleted TF2 myself to free up some space. You want to uninstall Steam games from within Steam so you don't confuse it into downloading updates / new content / the game all over again.

    Yes i noticed this but a bit late i already deleted it the way i posted above. What is the best way to search your computer for the file to make sure its off my computer.

    I now know to do it the way red cube has said for next time.

    If when you log into Steam you do not see TF2 in your game library, you've probably deleted all of it. Especially if you've removed all TF2 files from /Application Support/etc.

    However, if when you log into Steam you still see TF2 in your game library, you should uninstall it (or what's left of it) via Steam.

    So in Steam go to "Library" > "Installed". You should get a list of your installed games, including TF2. This is where you can follow what Red Cube said. Right-click where it says TF2 (the title) and then select "delete local content".
