How do I Uninstall and reinstall a game on Mac?

Answered by Edward Huber

To uninstall a game on Mac, you can follow these steps:

1. Locate the game in your Applications folder. You can access the Applications folder by clicking on the Finder icon in your dock, then selecting “Applications” in the sidebar.

2. Once you’ve found the game you want to uninstall, simply drag it to the Trash icon in your dock. Alternatively, you can right-click on the game and select “Move to Trash.”

3. After moving the game to the Trash, you can right-click on the Trash icon and choose “Empty Trash” to permanently delete the game from your Mac. Please note that once you empty the Trash, the game cannot be recovered unless you have a backup.

Now, if you want to reinstall a game purchased from the Mac App Store, you can follow these steps:

1. Launch the App Store on your Mac. You can find it in your Applications folder or by using Spotlight search.

2. Once the App Store is open, click on your Account Profile located in the bottom left corner of the App Store window.

3. Make sure that you are logged into the same Apple ID that you used to purchase the game. If you’re not, click on “Sign Out” and then sign in with the correct Apple ID.

4. Scroll down to find the game you want to reinstall. If you have a large number of purchases, you can use the search bar at the top right corner of the App Store window to quickly find the game.

5. Once you’ve located the game, click on the Download icon (it looks like a cloud with an arrow pointing down). The game will begin downloading and will appear in your Applications folder once the download is complete.

That’s it! You have successfully uninstalled and reinstalled a game on your Mac. Remember to always check if you have enough storage space on your Mac before reinstalling a game, as some games can be quite large in size.
