Are you looking to uninstall Microsoft Outlook from your Mac? Whether you no longer need the application or want to switch to a different email client, we’ve got you covered. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of uninstalling Outlook on your Mac.

Before You Begin

Before proceeding with the uninstallation process, it is recommended to close Outlook and any other Microsoft Office applications that might be running on your Mac.

Uninstalling Outlook

To uninstall Outlook from your Mac, follow these simple steps:

  1. Open Finder: Click on the Finder icon in your Dock or press Command + Space and type “Finder” into the search bar. Press Enter to open Finder.
  2. Navigate to Applications: In the left sidebar of Finder, click on “Applications” under the “Favorites” section.
  3. Locate Microsoft Outlook: Scroll through the list of applications and locate Microsoft Outlook.

    Alternatively, you can use the search bar at the top right corner of Finder to search for “Outlook”.

  4. Move to Trash: Once you have found Microsoft Outlook, drag and drop its icon onto the Trash bin located at the end of the Dock. Alternatively, you can right-click on Microsoft Outlook and select “Move to Trash”.
  5. Delete Permanently: To complete the uninstallation process, right-click on the Trash bin in your Dock and select “Empty Trash”. Confirm when prompted.

Note: Emptying your Trash will permanently delete all files inside it, including Microsoft Outlook. Make sure you have backed up any important data before proceeding.

Removing Outlook Preferences and Data

By default, uninstalling Outlook will remove the application itself but leave behind preferences and data files. If you want to completely remove all traces of Outlook from your Mac, follow these additional steps:

  1. Open Finder: Click on the Finder icon in your Dock or press Command + Space and type “Finder” into the search bar.
  2. Go to Library: While in Finder, click on “Go” in the menu bar at the top of the screen and select “Go to Folder”.
  3. Enter Path: In the “Go to Folder” window, type “~/Library/” (without quotes) and click “Go”.

    This will open your user Library folder.

  4. Delete Outlook Files: Within the Library folder, locate and delete any folders or files related to Outlook. You can search for “Outlook” using the search bar at the top right corner of Finder for easier access.
