    Hi,

    I recently removed a few third-party applications from my MacBook, But there are several associated files in my Mac. How do I clean all at once to get more space in my storage drive?

      I have to take your word here.

      You write about the associated files so you would select and delete those as you wish. Sometimes folk didn’t mean what they wrote and are looking at those rather awful Mac Cleaner apps. If you use such don’t expect much sympathy if they trash your Apple computer.

      What did you remove,

      and how did you remove them?

      There are a number of apps that will delete not only the main app but also all the associated files.
      However, the associated files usually only amount to a few kilobytes and will not create a lot more space on your drive.
