Today’s guide will walk you through how to uninstall Citrix on Mac OS X. Quite a few applications are tough to remove and Citrix is unquestionably one of them. But the truth is, it’s not for the reason you’d expect, but we’ll explain why soon.

Ok, let’s start! To begin with, you need to realize that “uninstalling an app” and “app removal” are two completely different things that have two completely different end results. Why? Well, removing an app from your Mac is just removing the application and not all its smaller, extra files. This means that regardless of the fact that you clear out the application, the app leaves lots of leftovers on your Mac which then wind up wasting tons of space.

Luckily, removing an app is fast and easy. It requires just four straightforward steps. However, if you want to remove the entire app and all of its files, jump down to How to Uninstall Citrix from Your Mac with CleanMyMac X. However, let’s first just check out how to remove Citrix from your Mac.

Just follow these steps:

  1. Click on your Applications folder.
  2. Click and hold on the Citrix icon.
  3. Move the Citrix icon to the Trash.
  4. Ctrl+click on the Trash icon and click “Empty Trash.”

Finished! Well, sort of. As was mentioned above, removing an application by dragging it to the Trash doesn’t uninstall the app from your Mac entirely. Removing Citrix from your Mac is slightly different, and a bit more challenging. However the good news is, there are lots of Mac utilities that will enable you to completely uninstall Citrix from your Mac! Wait a sec, an application to uninstall applications?! Go figure, right? And we recommend downloading CleanMyMac X. But first, let’s look at the manual way to uninstall Citrix from Mac OS X.

 

How to Uninstall Citrix from Your Mac Without an Uninstaller

When you drag Citrix from the Applications folder to the Trash, you’re just getting rid of the app and not all its additional files. That means that even though you get rid of the application, the app leaves lots of leftovers on your Mac which end up wasting tons of space. This means lots of extra files consuming free space on your Mac! But where are the files? Well, Citrix roots files outside of the Applications folder and when you drag Citrix from the Applications folder to the Trash, these extra files stay.

Deleting the leftovers from any application is painful because there is typically more than one area that extras are kept. And, you have to figure out where they are! A few places where applications might have saved files include:

~/Library/Preferences/
~/Library/Application Support/

Therefore, to completely uninstall Citrix from your Mac for good, you’re going to need to search around in these folders and delete all the small files associated with the application itself.

However, there’s a quicker, easier way to completely uninstall any software, including uninstalling Citrix from your Mac…
