How to Uninstall Camtasia on a Mac Manually

  1. To start the removal process of Camtasia, first ensure that the application is closed. Quit Camtasia from the Dock panel.
     Choosing Quit Camtasia Studio in Dock context menu
  2. Once you have closed the program, go to the Applications folder and remove Camtasia from there.

  3. Then, it’s time for an important step that most Mac users usually don’t do. You should find and remove all the service files of Camtasia which have been created during its use. When you just remove an app to Trash, it service files still remain on your Mac. Over time, they can eat up a significant disk space on your Mac. If you wish to keep your computer clean and help it to work smoothly and quickly, then always remember to get rid of such junk files. By default, apps store their service files in the hidden Library folder. Go to Library and remove all the files related to Camtasia from the following folders:
    • ~Library/Application Support/TechSmith
    • ~Library/Caches/
    • ~Library/Containers/…
    • ~Library/Preferences/…
    • ~Library/Cookies/…
    • ~Library/LaunchAgents/…

    Camtasia is designed by the TechSmith company. That’s why most files are named by the company’s name.
