Uninstall Splashtop Mac Manually

You have probably heard about caches and logs. They are the types of service files that every application creates on your Mac. However, you may not know that when you delete an app by dragging and dropping it to the Trash, its service files still remain on your Mac. So, if you want to completely remove the Splashtop app from your Mac, you should delete its useless service files, too. To uninstall Splashtop Streamer from your Mac manually, take the following steps:

  1.  Quit Splashtop Streamer.
  2. Open the Applications folder. Choose SplashtopStreamer.app and select Move to Trash from the context menu. 
  3. To get rid of Splashtop Streamer completely, you should find its remaining files on your Mac disk and delete them manually. Generally, leftovers of the apps are stored in the main Library folder and the user’s Library folder. To remove unneeded files and folders related to Splashtop Streamer, open Finder → in the menu bar, click Go → Go to Folder → in the window that appears, type the path /Library…. In this directory, you will find the remains of the programs. Click Go. Check the following subfolders for the files associated to Splashtop:
  • /Library/LaunchAgents
  • /Library/LaunchDaemons
  • /Users/Shared/SplashtopStreamer
    1. Repeat the previous step in the Finder to open a certain folder and type ~/Libray. The tilda sign means that the folder is hidden. In this way, you can get access to the user’s hidden Library folder, where the rest of the Splashtop files are stored. Check the following subfolders and delete the files related to Splashtop:
    • ~/Library/Application Support/Splashtop
    • ~/Library/Preferences
