Uninstalling applications in Mac

Removing or uninstalling applications in mac can be a bit cumbersome as there is no windows like “Add/Remove Programs” option.

1. Instead go to Finder; click on Applications. The different application icons that you see in there is by itself an individual folder. Move the application to Trash.
2. Now, we need to delete the preference files. The preference files are stored with plist as its extension in 2 different locations
HD>Users>{UserName}>Library>Preferences
HD>Library>Preferences
Find the plist file for your application in the above 2 locations and delete them!

w00t! Your application is now removed :D
