How Do I Delete An App In OS X?


How do I remove an app I downloaded from the Mac App Store?
- Asked by Corey S. January 18th, 2013


The easiest way to delete an app is via Launchpad in OS X. You can access Launchpad via function key F4 or by doing a thumb and three finger pinch on a trackpad. Once you are in Launchpad you will see a list of all your apps. Hold the mouse down on one of the apps until they all start bouncing. Apps installed from the Mac App Store will have a black and white X at the top left corner. Click on it to delete the app.
