    Default basic mac operational question

    so ive had my 1st mac now about 6 months, pretty cool i spose... my question is this: if i want to uninstall a program, do i just send it to the garbage? or is there an uninstall process like windows?


    or if that question was too ez... maybe you can answer this:


    im having an issue where ableton crashes intermittently but not unexpectedly when i load the Komplete Kontrol vst for the komplete keyboard.. sometimes it crashes ableton when i load certain instruments. not always, but it seems to be just 3 that crash it under certain circumstances. starting at the root i figure ill reinstall those 3, but have never uninstalled a vst plug in on mac and i have my sound libraries on a external drive.

    what steps do i want to take to (k)completely remove any trace of these 3 and reinstall?

    I use App Delete from here:

    You could just drag it from the applications folder, but it will leave remnants, so app delete is the thing to use if you want a fresh install.

    There are other delete apps out there too which all do the same thing.

    CleanMyMac2 is also good for unistalling and keeping you're Mac in check.
