Uninstalling and Reinstalling macOS 13 Ventura Built-in Apps


macOS 13 Ventura comes with several built-in apps, but you may want to remove some of them to free up space or tailor your system to your preferences. This guide will show you how to uninstall these apps and, if needed, how to reinstall them.

Uninstalling Built-in Apps:

Click on the Launchpad icon in your Dock or use Spotlight search (Cmd + Space) to find and open the app you want to uninstall.

Once the app is in the Dock, right-click (or Ctrl-click) its icon.

In the contextual menu, you'll see the option to "Move to Trash." Click this option to uninstall the app.

To completely remove the app, open Finder, click on "Go" in the menu bar, and select "Go to Folder."

Type in /Applications and press Enter to open the Applications folder.

Find the app you want to uninstall and drag it to the Trash.

To empty the Trash, right-click on the Trash icon in your Dock and choose "Empty Trash."

Reinstalling Built-in Apps:

If you ever want to reinstall a built-in app, you can do so through the App Store:

Open the App Store from the Applications folder or the Dock.

In the search bar, type the name of the app you want to reinstall and press Enter.

Find the app in the search results and click on it.

Click the "Get" or "Download" button to initiate the reinstallation process.

Once the download and installation are complete, the app will be available on your system again.

By following these steps, you can easily uninstall and, if necessary, reinstall built-in apps in macOS 13 Ventura, allowing you to customize your system to suit your needs and preferences.
