How To Reset Mac Apps To Default Settings

[Use AppCleaner For Simple Reset]

AppCleaner is a free software for Mac operating system, which lets you clear out all the data, as well as uninstall any app you want from your computer.

The reason behind the development of this app is the fact that over time, any app can get a bit buggy or slow, thus putting it’s usability in question.

If ignored long enough, the apps then start to hang, forcing you to Force Quit them over and over again, which can further corrupt the files associated with it.

The only solution, short of reinstalling the app, is to remove all the data associated with it, so that it reverts back to it’s default settings.

However, carrying out this task can be a lot of hassle if you don’t know what you’re doing. Thankfully, the AppCleaner app lets you complete these process with these simple steps:

  1. Download AppCleaner For Mac.
  2. Unzip the downloaded file to access the installation files.
  3. Install the software on your system.
  4. Close all other applications.
  5. Run “AppCleaner”.
  6. Click on the “Four Bar Menu” icon on the top right corner.
  7. Find the app you want to reset.
  8. Click on the app.
  9. You will see a new popup, showing you various files to be deleted.
  10. “Deselect” the app itself.
  11. Make sure all the files that you want to delete are selected.
  12. Click on the “Remove” button.
  13. Wait for everything to be removed.
  14. Close the app.
  15. Open the app you just reset.
  16. You will see it has reverted back to it’s original state.
