Uninstall Minecraft Application in Mac OS X – Minecraft removal steps from Mac OS X

Want to uninstall Minecraft apps? Not able to find a way to uninstall Minecraft completely from your Mac Machine? Is your Mac machine giving error after manually uninstalling Minecraft application?

Uninstalling Minecraft in mac is just a different approach than in Windows OS. Windows OS provides a option to uninstall application or application manufactures provides uninstaller with the application. But in Mac OS X there is nothing like uninstall utility. To uninstall the Minecraft you simply need to drag & drop the Minecraft application bundles to trash, that's it. STOP this is not the end there is more to properly uninstalling the Minecraft from your machine.

Minecraft Bundles – The Application Bundle

Drag & Drop leaves the associated files of Minecraft application. Normally, it is thought that all the associated files of a application is saved in the one folder but it is not so. Minecraft supported files & preference files are saved in other location than the Minecraft Package folder. So you need to get all these files deleted manually. Deleting all the left overs of Minecraft is not that easy, you need to find all the location where Minecraft has saved the files. Some of the location where Minecraft would have saved the files are ~/Library/Preferences/[] ~/Library/Application Support/[]
