The first issue macOS users encounter when they try to delete µTorrent app is that the app cannot be deleted via Launchpad (there is no cross to remove it when you hold the button). But don’t worry! In this article, we will explain how to uninstall µTorrent on a Mac completely and safely.
Uninstall µTorrent Manually
Usually, Mac users go to the Applications folder in Finder and simply delete the µTorrent app to Trash. Nice, but we have bad news for you. You deleted only the executive file, while all its service files remained on your hard drive.
To wipe off the app completely from your Mac, you just need to find the following folders (~ means that file or folder is hidden) and remove them as well:
- ~Library/Application Support/µtorrent
- ~ Library/Preferences/com.bittorrent.uTorrent.plist
- ~Library/Application Support/CrashReporter/uTorrent_717493EE-277A-5E54-8F02-3555ADA119B8.plist
To see hidden files and folders on a Mac, you can use a free application Funter.
