Excuse me, but I'm a new users, and I am wondering what the procedure is for uninstalling a program?

In the "other" OS, there was an Add/Remove Program icon in the control panel?

Do I just drag the app to the trash?

Or will that leave remnants everywhere?

Thanks
Roger

The uninstallation depends on the app. Normally you can just drag the application to the trash. Sometimes if you run the installer program again, it has an uninstall option. For things like MySQL, uninstallation is more complicated and concerns deleting the receipt for the program as well any of the obvious program files.

I'd say that in a good percentage of cases you can just drag the apps to the trash.

Just drag it to the trash > empty trash when you're 100% sure you don't need it.

Just found this.
That should help you out.

Edit: Just found this and this.

Those should clear up any questions you have.
