• I logged into my iCloud account from a fresh install of macOS Sierra.
  • I had a very old version of ScreenFlow (from 2011) under Purchases in the App Store.
  • Installing it worked.
  • When I try to open it (from the App Store or from Spotlight), it says it's incompatible and offers me to search for a newer version.

Now how do I remove this old installed version? The App Store only shows me an "Open" button under Purchases, but I can't click on the icon to take me to a details page with an option to uninstall it.

It's harmless to just leave it there, but besides taking up a little disk space for nothing, it pollutes the Spotlight search index and just makes me feel my computer a little "dirty".


Removing ScreenFlow from Your Computer

To uninstall ScreenFlow, simply move the ScreenFlow application to the trash. (The ScreenFlow license is stored separately, so you do not need to re-activate your license if you reinstall ScreenFlow.) To completely remove ScreenFlow from your computer, move the following files to your trash:

  • /Applications/ScreenFlow
  • /System/Library/Extensions/TelestreamAudio.kext
  • /Library/Preferences/net.telestream.screenflow.plist
  • ~/Library/Preferences/com.vara.screenflow.LSSharedFileList.plist
  • ~/Library/Preferences/com.vara.screenflow.plist
  • ~/Library/Preferences/com.vara.screenflowhelper.plist
  • ~/Library/Preferences/net.telestream.screenflowapp.LSSharedFileList.plist
  • ~/Library/Preferences/net.telestream.screenflowapp.plist
  • ~/Library/Preferences/net.telestream.screenflowhelper.plist
