Hi

I uninstall an App (without an uninstaller - most apps dont' come with one) by dragging it into the trash leaves the junk in support folders. That must accumulate over time. Any way to find and remove supporting files and folders for apps no longer installed?

There are numerous utilities that will remove the several bytes of list files and such that removing an app might leave behind.

Hi,

I recommend you to use Revo Uninstaller. It has different scan modes allowing you to delete all files/folders and registry keys associated to a program during uninstallation.
