Gemini for Mac is a commercial duplicate file finder software developed by MacPaw. Before making the decision to purchase a license, you can download and install a free trial to find duplicate files on your Mac. But if you are not satisfied with its overall performance, you can easily uninstall Gemini as well. But is that so simple at all?

Here is what you should know about uninstalling apps on Mac:

To permanently uninstall a third party app, you need to delete it from the Applications folder and then delete it in the Trash. But that does not mean you can totally remove all its components by this way. In many cases, a bunch of app-related files and folder may still exist in multiple system folders, and you will need to manually delete them.

Now follow the steps below to carry out a thorough, effective removal of Gemini.
