  • Open up Launchpad from the Spotlight, or by gesture shortcut
  • Locate VirtualDJ, then click and hold its icon until it start to jiggle
  • Click the X appearing in the app icon, and click Delete in the confirmation window

Note that this option is only available when you installed VirtualDJ from Mac App Store. If there is no X that appears in the upper left corner of the app icon, that means this app is not installed through the App Store and cannot be deleted by this way.

Is the uninstall thorough? Check it out by these steps:

The VirtualDJ app itself has been removed by deleting it from the Finder or Launchpad, but does it mean that all components of VirtualDJ have been removed? You can utilize the Search feature in Finder to find out the truth by yourself:

  • Type ~Library in the box, and hit Go button, to access to the hidden system folder
