How to Delete Skype on Mac
Except funny emoticons there is one more thing about Skype on your Mac: it creates too many system files that occupy your hard drive and remain even after you have deleted the app. Its size may be even bigger than the size of the app itself.
Note that these files could be somewhere inside the system, in various folders that are usually hidden. App Cleaner provides you with an ability not only to remove Skype but rather all system files that are associated with it, thus optimizing space on a hard drive.
In this figure, you can see, that Skype takes 445.4 Mb in total, but the app itself is only 93 Mb. Everything else is system files and caches, that are left after simple ordinary deletion.
How to uninstall Skype on Mac completely:
- Download App Cleaner.
- Launch the app and click on the Confirm button.
- Find Skype in the app’s list.
- Select all files associated with Skype.
- Press Remove and enter a user password. Right after you can delete all files at once.
If you have deleted Skype before, but still would like to free up everything else, go to “Remains” section as it’s shown in a screenshot below.
