I had a need to install Samsung's Smart Switch
app on my Mac
this weekend to transfer files over from an Android
phone. That's when I discovered how horribly incompatible Android
devices really are and just how terrible Samsung's
software is. They don't follow the standard way that apps that run on a Mac
get uninstalled, preferring the Windows
style approach instead. Boo. This is how you get rid of Smart Switch
from your Mac
if you happened to (probably accidentally) have installed it.
First go to the Applications
folder in Finder
and look for the Smart Switch
folder. Yep, it's in its own folder for some god awful reason instead of using the normal application package structure.
Double click the Uninstall.app
from the Smart Switch
folder and click Yes
It will ask you to enter your password since some drivers are going to be uninstalled, so do that and click OK
Once the uninstaller finishes removing the app click Complete
The Smart Switch
folder isn't automatically removed from the Applications
directory so you can go ahead and move it to Trash
