Uninstall TotalFinder

Removal is just two clicks away

TotalFinder comes with a convenient uninstaller script which safely removes TotalFinder from your computer.

Under TotalFinder's Menu icon select Uninstall TotalFinder:

If you have trouble running the menu command you may alternatively run the following in Terminal.app:

open "/Library/ScriptingAdditions/TotalFinder.osax/Contents/Resources/TotalFinder.bundle/Contents/Resources/TotalFinder Uninstaller.app"

Or download and open the latest archive from totalfinder.binaryage.com and launch TotalFinder Uninstaller from the DMG.

Purging the configuration

By default the uninstaller does not remove your configuration settings from /Users/<user>/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist

It is just a few extra bytes we leave in case you need to temporarily uninstall TotalFinder and decide to reinstall later.

A future version of the uninstaller will offer to remove the configuration keys. Right now you have to do it by hand. If you want to clean the TotalFinder trail completely, remove all TotalFinder prefixed keys from that file. You can use plist editor to do that:

open ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist
