Uninstalling Google Drive from your Mac is easy! Just follow our step-by-step guide and you'll be on your way in no time.
Google Drive is a cloud storage service developed by Google. It allows users to store and access their files from anywhere in the world. It is one of the most popular services for storing and sharing files online, but it can be challenging to uninstall from your Mac. This tutorial will walk you through the steps of uninstalling Google Drive from your Mac.
Step 1: Open Finder
First, open Finder on your Mac. To do this, click on the Finder icon in the Dock. Alternatively, you can press Command (⌘) + N to open a new Finder window.
Step 2: Open the Applications Folder
Once you’re in the Finder window, open the Applications folder. To do this, click on the Applications folder in the sidebar or press Command (⌘) + Shift + A.
Step 3: Uninstall Google Drive
Once you’re in the Applications folder, locate the Google Drive app. This will be the blue and white icon with the Google Drive logo. Once you’ve found it, right-click on the icon and select “Move to Trash”. This will send the application to the Trash.
Step 4: Empty the Trash
Once you’ve sent the Google Drive app to the Trash, you’ll need to empty the Trash to complete the uninstallation process. To do this, right-click on the Trash icon in the Dock and select “Empty Trash”. This will delete all the items in the Trash, including the Google Drive app.
Step 5: Delete the Google Drive Folder
After uninstalling the Google Drive app, you’ll need to delete the Google Drive folder from your Mac. To do this, open Finder and select Go > Home in the menu bar. This will open your Home folder. Inside this folder, you’ll find a folder called “Google Drive”. Delete this folder by right-clicking on it and selecting “Move to Trash”. Once it’s in the Trash, you can empty the Trash as described in the previous step.
Step 6: Delete the Google Drive Preferences
Finally, you’ll need to delete the Google Drive preferences from your Mac. To do this, open the Finder and press Command (⌘) + Shift + G. This will open a window where you can type in the path to the Google Drive preferences folder. The path is “~/Library/Preferences/com.google.drive.” Once you’ve entered this path, press Enter to open the folder. Now, you can delete all the files in this folder.
Once you’ve completed all these steps, you’ve successfully uninstalled Google Drive from your Mac. Google Drive will no longer be installed on your computer, and any files you had stored in the Google Drive folder will no longer be accessible.
