How to Uninstall a Mac OS X Application

Are you new to Mac OS X? Want to uninstall an application? For many apps, it’s really just as simple as finding the application in question and dragging it to the trashcan on the dock bar. However, it may leave some extraneous .pref files, et cetera.

One of the first apps you should install (until I find out other options), is AppCleaner (freeware!).

This neat little application works great and is as simple as dropping it into the trash can, but it will also remove those pesky little .pref files, and other items. The other neat thing about this, is that you can also simply find the application by clicking the Applications button, or if it’s a widget, click the Widgets button. “Coolio!”
