Hi everyone

I'd like to uninstall playonmac, but the dmg installer (version 4.3.4) didn't come with an uninstaller. Please can you tell me which files/folders I need to find to uninstall it manually? thanks

Hello. I'm a linux user, and have no idea how to uninstall POM. I searched the wiki and forum and found no answer. Only the same question in 2016.   Usually on Mac the process is to move the app to the trash.
 

If a experienced POM does answer here, I will add the infos to this wiki page: http://wiki.playonlinux.com/index.php/Installing_PlayOnMac

Trying to answer your questions regarding uninstaling POM. Just dropping out POM from Applications is not enough because it also has additional working files beyond this folder. And this also related to other software too.

I do suggest you to use some 3rd party tools like CleanMyMac or AppCleaner which may track app installation files and then remove them all when needed. I use second mentioned uninstall tool which way cheaper than CleanMyMac and also there are  one more free available cant recall its name.

I took screenshot showing POM instalation files the ones you need to remove.

Also note that Library folder is not visible by default in Finder use command+shift+. key combination to reveal it.
