Removing apps from the Apple MacBook is now possible

Most people use Apple MacBooks have a problem that the preinstalled apps in MacBook can not be removed, but now Apple has updated the software for their users with a new feature in which the MacBook’s apps can be removed by the user manually based on their preferences and now the user can recall the apps they do not use.

Removing Mac software applications is a bit different than the process on a Windows PC and there are some stubborn Mac programs that even most of us have trouble getting rid of. But there is always a solution. You can uninstall or remove a software program or application from your Mac – a useful process that helps make room on a Mac and speeds it up.

Things are a bit different on the Mac. After Apple approved NeXT OS and launched Mac OS X on the market in 2001, it also maintained the UNIX way of separating system files from a user’s workspace.

Programs are therefore usually stored in the / Applications folder, and a user’s preferences for how the app can be configured are stored in ~ / Library / Preferences. In addition, some necessary supporting files can be stored in ~ / Library / Application Support and / Library / Application Support.

The apps that are in the Applications folder (although they can be stored elsewhere …) are in fact bundles of many files that are all packaged at once. As far as the user is concerned, all you have to do is double-click the icon of an app – or click once for a shortcut in the Dock – and the application starts, with all the resources it needs stored in the application package and elsewhere.

Which means, to remove an application in macOS, you only have to drag the app to the bin (‘Trash’ in Apple’s unchanging American English). There is no explicit need to do anything else … in most cases, anyway.

If you do not run the Mac with an administrator account, you will also be prompted for an administrator password to delete an app. Follow the next process to delete any app from MacBook.
