Hello, there are many ways you can try to delete the app from your MacBook:

( 1 ) For the app itself, if it owns an uninstall function, use that.

( 2 ) For one click to delete the app and the related files together, you are suggested to use iBoysoft MagicMenu, a convenient tool to remove the app completely.

  1. Free download, install, and open it.
  2. Select Extension on the left, scroll down, find Utility, and click the download arrow near the Uninstall App.
  3. Finder > Applications > Right-click your unwanted app and choose Uninstall > Uninstall > Yes.

( 3 ) For the app you downloaded from the App Store. Open the Launchpad, hold down the app, and click the x icon when the app shakes.

( 4 ) For other third-party apps. Open the Finder, right-click your unneeded one, and select Move to Trash.

( 5 ) For all apps. Open Terminal, type cd /Applications/, then type sudo rm -rf and drag your wanted app to it.

Note that Fix 3,4, and 5 need to clear the leftovers in the Library.
