    Hello guys,
    How to completely remove the apps from Mac?
    Are you using the other software or apps for moving the unwanted apps?

    Yes, most of the users have an application for that: freemacsoft.net/appcleaner/
    It is one of the most popular apps for that purpose and it is free.

    I just move them to trash and empty it, there can be some leftovers but it's usually not so much like on Windows, so I see no need for AppCleaner.

    Is it clean?
    Does any other document saving in the Mac?

    to remove every trace i do this:
    sudo find / > /Users/<yourname>/Desktop/allfiles.txt

    then i grep all i know about the App/Publisher

    cd Desktop
    cat allfiles.txt | grep icrosoft

    do this grep for all you know about the Prog and you will find all files connected to it

    Most of the apps in Mac can be uninstalled easily by dragging them to trash from application folder and many other comes with accompanying uninstall applications that will clean house and completely remove the apps too. Additionally, there are third party utilities for OS X that removes apps very easily.

    AppZapper is great. It's simple, works, no bloatware.
