Delete Apps on Mac
The easiest way to delete apps on Mac OS is to use the Finder. Follow these steps to do so:
- Locate the app in the Finder. Most apps are in your Applications folder. Or use Spotlight to find the app, then press and hold the Command (⌘) key while double-clicking the app in Spotlight (you will go to the application folder).
- Drag the app to the Trash, or select the app and choose File > Move to Trash.
- If you're asked for a user name and password, enter the name and password of an administrator account on your Mac. This is probably the name and password you use to log in to your Mac.
- To delete the app, choose Finder > Empty Trash.

Caches are stored in:
You can use third-party app to clean the App easily, for example: AppCleaner.
