How to delete an application on a MacBook

#1
Users always install the applications that they need on their MacBooks, especially if they are free. But sometimes the application doesn't do what it was advertised to do, or the user is no longer using it and needs to be deleted. However new macOS users do not know how to uninstall unused applications.

To delete an application on a MacBook we have three options:

Method 1: Delete directly on LauchPad.

Step 1: Press F4> Find the application to delete.

Step 2: Hold down the left mouse button on the application you want to delete> Press the slider to delete.

Method 2: Delete the application on the Finder.

Step 1: Finder> Applications.

Step 2: Right mouse button (touch 2 fingers if using trackpad)> Move to Trash.

Method 3: Clear the application from Memory Management.

Step 1: About This Mac.

Step 2: Storage> Manage.

Step 3: Applications.

Step 4: Select the diagonal> Remove.

Here are three simple ways to delete an application on a MacBook. I hope this helped you! :)

This is a very helpful, I have had such issues over the past and I just resorted to ignoring it because I really don't know how to go about it but with the information which you provided above, I'm certainly going to able to take care of this problem now.

Thanks for sharing. Good job.

I am surprised it works different with Mac than on any other advice.
Good old recycle bin is what I remember and still use.
I used a Mac for about a month when I was in USA but I did not pay attention to this detail.
I will purchase a Mac next year so I find this very useful and simple.
Will remember it.
Thanks !
