How Can I Delete An Application From My Mac?

Is there any way available for me to delete an application from my Mac? I am new to the Mac computer and confused about how to complete the app removal task. Any response would be appreciated!

Mac equips a native app remover for users to delete unwanted apps from the machine, but users have to clear its associated files scattered among different folders and locations separately. Or it cannot be called a complete removal. Here we'll show you how to perform that:

Launch Finder > Applications > locate the unwanted app > left-click the app and drag it to the Mac Trash on the Dock. 

After that, you need to find the associated files of the deleted app and move them to the trash followingly. 

If, I mean, you find the native app remover cumbersome to use, there is an alternative way to uninstall the app and take all pertinent files away simultaneously, that is, to run a professional app uninstaller -- iBoysoft MagicMenu.

iBoysoft MagicMenu is a fabulous app remover that not only removes the app from your Mac quickly but also lists all associated files like caches, preference files, user settings/files, downloads, packages, root files, etc. for you to determine what to delete. You can check the useless files by toggling the box close to them, and then iBoysoft MagicMenu will delete the app and files altogether!
