Today’s post is going to show you how to uninstall Sublime Text 3 on Mac OS X (click here for Sublime Text, or click here for Sublime Text 3). A handful of applications are trouble to remove and Sublime Text 3 is without a doubt one of them. And yet, it’s not for the reason you’d expect, but you’ll find out why soon.

But listen if you don’t want to read this entire post and just want to uninstall Sublime Text 3 now, use a Mac uninstaller. CleanMyMac X is the ideal cleaning utility for uninstalling apps. Download it right now free and never stress about uninstalling another difficult app again.

Ok, let’s get down to it! First of all, you should be warned that “uninstalling an app” and “app removal” are two different things that have two completely different results. Why is that? Well, removing an app from your Mac is just removing the app and not all the extra files with it. That means that despite the fact that you dispose of the application, the application leaves behind tons of leftover files on your Mac which then end up wasting tons of space.

The good news is that removing an application is effortless. It will take just four simple steps. Then again, if you really want to uninstall the whole application and each and every one of its files, scroll down to How to Uninstall Sublime Text 3 from Your Mac with CleanMyMac X. But for now, let’s just have a look at how to remove Sublime Text 3 from Mac OS X.

Follow these 4 steps:

  1. Select the Applications folder.
  2. Click-and-hold the Sublime Text 3 icon.
  3. Move the Sublime Text 3 icon to the Trash.
  4. Control+click on the Trash icon and click “Empty Trash.”

Finished! Well, kind of. We mentioned it above, removing an app by dragging it to the Trash does not uninstall the app from your Mac completely. Removing Sublime Text 3 from your Mac is a little different, and slightly more complicated. But luckily for us, there are plenty of powerful applications that will help you completely uninstall Sublime Text 3 from Mac OS X! Wait, what? An application to uninstall apps?! Yep. And we suggest downloading CleanMyMac X. But first, let’s look at the manual way to uninstall Sublime Text 3 from your Mac

 

How to Uninstall Sublime Text 3 from Mac OS X Without an Uninstaller

By dragging Sublime Text 3 from the Applications folder to the Trash, you’re just getting rid of the application and not all the extra files along with it. Which means that even though you clear out the app, the app leaves piles of leftover files on your Mac that wind up wasting tons of space. This means tons of files consuming free space on your Mac! But where are these files? Sublime Text 3 installs files outside the Applications folder and when you drag Sublime Text 3 to the Trash, these extra, unnecessary files aren’t removed.

Deleting the leftovers from any app is a chore because there’s likely more than one folder that files are stored. Additionally, you need to find out where they are! Some places where applications might have saved files include:

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

Subsequently, to completely uninstall Sublime Text 3 from your Mac , you will have to search around through these folders and delete all the little files associated with the application itself.
