For those Mac newbies, uninstalling applications on Mac to some extent is not an easy job.

However, no such feature exists in Mac OS X.

In the following part we will show you the detailed steps to delete applications on your Mac. But there is more to do than just a simple uninstalling, we will also teach you how to remove the app leftovers. Let’s get started.
