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?
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.
In this manual removal section, we divide the removal steps into two parts: deleting Gemini and deleting its leftovers. Make sure to follow the instructions below strictly.
Cannot move Gemini to the Trash? If the app is currently active, you will not be able to delete it to the Trash. To deactivate an running app, just right click on its icon in the Dock, and choose Quit (if Gemini stops responding, choose Force Quit instead).
If Gemini remains in Dock, you can right click on it and choose Options > Remove from Dock. After that, take one of the following methods to perform the uninstall.
As we mentioned before, after deleting Gemini the app itself, you can go ahead to delete its components in hidden system directories, for example, the ~Library folder.
Here’s how to utilize the Search feature in Finder to sweep out Gemini traces:
After throwing all items associated with Gemini, don’t rush to empty your Trash. To avoid any risk, you are suggested to keep those items in the Trash for a few days, and see if your Mac works well as it was before. If nothing wrong occurs, you can consider to delete them in the Trash, or leave them to Trash’s automatic deletion.
That’s all for the manual removal of Gemini for Mac. If you think the aforementioned steps are too complicated or time-wasting to complete, turn to the option below.
