How many apps do you have currently installed on your Mac? More importantly, out of all those Macs how many of them do you actually use? Over time most people install quite a number of apps that they either never use, or use for a short time and then don’t. Odds are you may have told yourself that you’d like to keep some of those apps around ‘just in case’ you decide to use them again – but frankly speaking it is unlikely that day will ever come.
The problem with keeping old apps around is that it takes up valuable storage space on your Mac. As such it would be far better to remove them, especially seeing as you can always re-install them at a later date if need be. When you remove programs from your Mac it is also important to ensure that no files remain – which is where Movavi Mac Cleaner can play a crucial role.
Essentially Movavi Mac Cleaner will let you cleanly remove any programs you don’t need from your Mac – including native OS X apps that tend to be tricky to remove through normal means. To uninstall programs on Mac all you need to do is:
- Launch Movavi Mac Cleaner and wait for the automated scan to finish.
- Go to the ‘Uninstaller’ tab, and wait as it scans and finds all the apps on your Mac.
- Click on ‘User Apps’ to find a list of the apps you’ve installed.
- Check the boxes next to the apps that you want to remove.
- Click ‘Remove’ to delete them.
Aside from being so straightforward, the ‘Uninstaller’ in Movavi Mac Cleaner also has a number of other features. If you want to remove OS X apps you can find them under the ‘OS X Apps’ submenu. Similarly to detect leftovers from other apps you can head to the ‘Leftovers’ menu.
In addition to letting you remove apps you no longer need, Movavi Mac Cleaner can help you to clear up more space by deleting junk files. Its ‘Disk Usage’ feature will let you visually see where space is being wasted on your Mac, so you can decide how to clean and free up space. On top of all that it has other features such as a ‘Shredder’ to delete confidential files, as well as its own in-built antivirus and firewall.
Suffice to say Movavi Mac Cleaner is an excellent tool that will let you easily remove any programs you no longer use, and clear up even more space on top of that. Frankly speaking if you use it regularly you will find you have much more free space to work with – and your Mac will probably run a whole lot faster too.
