How To Delete Minecraft On Mac

So you’ve decided to delete Minecraft from your Mac? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. As a fellow Minecraft enthusiast, I understand that sometimes we need to clear some space or take a break from the game. In this article, I will walk you through the process of deleting Minecraft from your Mac step by step.

Before we begin, I want to remind you to make sure you have a backup of your Minecraft worlds and any other important files. You don’t want to lose all your hard work!

Step 1: Locate the Minecraft Application

To delete Minecraft, you first need to locate the application on your Mac. Usually, it can be found in the Applications folder. You can easily access this folder by clicking on the Finder icon in your dock and selecting “Applications” from the sidebar.

Step 2: Move Minecraft to Trash

Once you have found the Minecraft application, simply click on it and drag it to the Trash icon in your dock. Alternatively, you can right-click on the Minecraft application and select “Move to Trash” from the dropdown menu.

Step 3: Empty the Trash

After you have moved Minecraft to the Trash, it’s time to empty the Trash. To do this, right-click on the Trash icon in your dock and select “Empty Trash” from the options. Keep in mind that once you empty the Trash, the Minecraft application and all associated files will be permanently deleted from your Mac.

Step 4: Remove Minecraft Support Files

Although you have successfully deleted the Minecraft application, there may still be some support files left behind on your Mac. To remove these files, you can use a third-party app like AppCleaner or you can manually search for and delete them. Some common locations for Minecraft support files include:

~/Library/Application Support/minecraft

Remember to be cautious when deleting files manually and make sure you are only removing Minecraft-related files.


Deleting Minecraft from your Mac is a simple process that requires a few steps. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can uninstall Minecraft and free up space on your Mac. Remember to always keep a backup of your important files and take breaks from gaming when needed. Happy exploring!
