1. Uninstall programs on Mac from Launchpad
2. Uninstall programs on Mac from Applications
3. Uninstall programs on Mac from the app

Normally we install various programs in macOS in order to be more productive depending on the type of profile we use (educational, entertainment, corporate, etc.), this allows us to further extend the system's own capabilities, but as always happens, it is possible that the use of these applications is no longer necessary. The massive installation of applications on our PC causes the available disk space to be reduced and if later we do not eliminate those applications that we do not use, the space will be meaninglessly occupied, worsening the use of the Mac..

 

In this case, it is best to uninstall these applications so that they do not take up unnecessary space on your computer and getFastAnswer will explain various methods to do so in macOS.
