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?

  • Why do you want to uninstall it? Some other packages might need it and it comes with the OS. Commented Apr 25, 2022 at 9:48

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.
