Last weekend we received a letter, and the email writer asked us about this question:

“How can I remove Kindle (the app and content) from my Mac?”

The solutions vary depend on what result you want to achieve in the uninstall task.

First of all, here is the basic knowledge you should know about Mac app removal…

Normally, uninstalling an app on Mac is quite simple, as you only need to delete the app in Finder’s Applications folder. However, some files created by the app, like the preferences, caches and other related files, still remain in multiple system folders, which occupy your disk space and finally make your Mac a mess.

If you want to get rid of the app-related items scattering around the system, you will need to manually detect any files and folder pertaining to the unwanted app in hidden directories. That requires users to pay a little more time and master the search skill.

To avoid those troubles, you could try the undermentioned method to uninstall Kindle.
