Hi, I'm Patrick Coll, and I'm here today to talk about how you delete an app on your Mac. So you may have downloaded an app that you don't really want. You want to get rid of it. And you're wondering how to. You may have just gone down to your dock and taken the app and just dragged it out of your dock, and then realized that it's still there, because it is. Or you may have done that by accident and thought you deleted an app that you didn't. If you really want to delete an app, here's how we do it. The key is to go to finder in your doc, and from finder you look in your sidebar you see applications. This is where your applications actually live. If what you see down in your doc is really just a representation of the apps that you use most often so you can get to them quickly, but where they actually live is in the applications folder. So if I want to get rid of this app for example. I want to delete it. Then just drag it down to my doc, and into the trash. It's gone. Empty the trash, you've deleted the app. Another quick way of doing that, I'm gonna undo what I just did, get it back. A quick way to put things in the trash, command+delete. It's in the trash, you can clear your trashcan now. And that is how you delete apps on the Mac. I'm Patrick Coll, hope this has been helpful, thank you for watching.
