I accidentally clicked the upgrade message, thinking I was upgrading something else, which downloaded Mojave.

I was then presented with a window to install Mojave. I don't want to install Mojave. It appeared I could not close the window, only minimize it. But once I did minimize it I was able to right-click and select Quit.

I would like to completely remove whatever was downloaded because I'm afraid it will install without my consent. Any solutions to remove the download?

It should be in Applications, as "Install macOS Mojave" - just in case you were looking for it under "M".

The installer is simply an app, so like app apps, just put it in the trash and empty the trash.

  • It won't go to trash and it won't let me right-click to send it to trash. – Kirk Dec 2 '18 at 18:03
  • Reboot & try again. Also... are you using an admin account, or managed? – Tetsujin Dec 2 '18 at 18:06
  • Admin account. I'll try the reboot. – Kirk Dec 2 '18 at 18:13
  • I rebooted but still can't get it to go into the trash can. I tried another app I don't use and it went in just fine. – Kirk Dec 2 '18 at 18:24
  • Thanks for you help on this. I found the answer. You have to drag it from the applications folder in Finder to trash. I got this from the link: discussions.apple.com/thread/7090389 – Kirk Dec 2 '18 at 18:30

Thank you so much. I couldn't delete from the Application icon in my dock, but I was able to go to the Application folder in Finder. I did not right-click, but I used the "trash can" icon I had added to the Finder toolbar. That sent it to Trash (it made me enter the administrator password first), and I then emptied Trash and I was fine.
