I'm new to Mac. A friend installed all kinds of additional software including zsh which I would like to uninstall. So how can I uninstall zsh?

  • Welcome to the site. You had two questions in here. This site works better when there is only one question per question. That way, it's easier for other people to find solutions if they have the same problem. I've edited out your second question, but feel free to ask it separately. – nohillside Aug 30 '13 at 10:12

If your friend changed the command that shells are opened with, you can change it back to the default login shell from Terminal's preferences:

If the default login shell was changed, you can change it back to /bin/bash by running chsh -s /bin/bash.

zsh is included with OS X (in /bin/zsh), but even if your friend installed a newer version of zsh, you don't necessarily need to uninstall or remove it.
