Uninstalling Apps from MacBook Air with Yosemite

macOS and Mac Apps

Can anyone share instructions on how to do this using keyboard & voiceover? I'm not very tech-save, & I knew at one time how to do this, but have completely forgotten. Thanks. AutumnLibra

Simply send the app to the trash by doing a command backspace while you're in your applications window in finder.

Thank you for your response. Could U please explain how to get to that point? I can go to applications grid from the Doc, & open the app, but don't remember how to get to the management area for apps. Do I select it somehow? I've tried vo space, & enter. Both simply open the app. Sorry, I'm not knowledgable. Thanks for your help.

No. Once you get to the applications folder, open it by pressing the right arrow key. Then, scroll down to the application you want to remove using the down arrow, then press command+backspace to send it to the trash.
Oh, by the way, Pressing the enter key opens the quickLook panel, where you can look at a file, and such. If you want to open an application, then press CMD, command plus O. Hope this all heps ou, and good luck.

Thank you so much. I had to access the "Applications" list through the "Go" menu. Once I found that, tho, I was able to do as U said. Finally, that's just what I needed. Again, thanks.
