I've tried the usual uninstall process but it won't work for iExplorer. I drag the icon to the trash, then it snaps back in place where it was.

Running OSX 10.8.5

You most likely still have iExplorer open, so make sure that iExplorer is quit and closed before you drag or move it to your Trash. iExplorer will uninstall just like any other Mac OS X app. It’s not any different from any other app in your Apps folder.

Having the same problem - i've clicked "x" to close iExplorer, but every time i move to trash, it says it's still open. How do I make sure that the app is quit and closed as you say?

In the Mac version, same as with most Mac OS X apps, clicking on the X doesn’t quit it and just closes the window. To quit iExplorer, you can do the following:

  • Command-Q
  • iExplorer menu > Quit iExplorer
  • Right-click on iExplorer on the Dock and choose to Quit

You cannot delete an app from Launchpad. Click on the Finder > Applications, then drag to Trash from within the Applications folder.

Yes, you can install iExplorer on your new computer. Just download iExplorer to the new computer and use the same registration code to transfer the license to it.

If you need your code, you can also use our automated code recovery tool on the page below:

Your iExplorer license covers any of your personal iDevices and lets you install it on up to two of your computers at a time, Mac or PC, and also covers any new ones you purchase in the future.

@L: I can assure you that iExplorer is 100% virus free and doesn’t install anything bad on your Mac or PC. It sounds like you just need to Force Quit iExplorer if it won’t quit on its own which is usually due to it being in the middle of a transfer. To do this, just press Option-Command-Escape at the same time, then select iExplorer in the list of apps and click on Force Quit. Then, you can Move it to your Trash once completely quit. Here’s our tutorial for how to uninstall:
