Uninstall Google Music Manager manually

You should remove all files and folders related to the Google Music Manager program. For this, take the next steps:

  1. Quit Google Music Manager. Open the Applications folder → select Music → drag and drop it to the Trash.
  2. As temporary service files are usually stored in the user’s hidden Library folder, you need to obtain access to it. For this, open Finder → in the menu bar click Go → Go to Folder → type ~/Library and click Go.
  3. Now find and delete all useless service files related to the Google Play Music Manager app. Remove these files in the next directories:

    • ~/Library/Application Support/Google/MusicManager
    • Music Manager Application Support folder in Finder window

    • ~/Library/Google/GoogleSoftwareUpdate/Actives/
    • Music Manage service files in Finder window

    • ~/Library/Logs/MusicManager/MusicManagerHelper.log/
    • Music Manager Logs folder in Finder window

    • ~/Library/Preferences/
    • Music Manager Preferences files in Finder window

    • ~/Library/PreferencePanes/MusicManager.prefPane/
    • Music Manager Logs folder in Finder window

  4. We also recommend that you check the following subfolders for the leftovers of Google Music Manager:

    • ~/Library/Caches/
    • ~/Library/LaunchAgents
    • ~/Library/LaunchDaemons
    • ~/Library/StartupItems

    The number of service files and directories depend on the user’s experience and the apps’ preferences. Moreover, some apps may scatter their service files throughout the disk. We recommend using a special tool, App CLeaner & Uninstaller, which automatically finds all files associated with each app.

  5. The last step is emptying the Trash bin to complete the Music Manager uninstallation.
