There are a couple of programs listed in Legacy Software in the System Information:

enter image description here

Is it possible to remove those entries? They are all old apps I've uninstalled, so there is no need to keep those information.

I already deleted all leftover of these apps located in Users/[home folder]/Library/Application Support & Library/Application Support and checked my drive with Funter (no vestige was found).

There is also plenty of useless information in the Installations list : the same app appears several times(sometimes 30 times) and old apps appear here as well. Is it possible/safe to remove those entries too ?

I'm running Mojave 10.14.6 on a MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017)

  • Funter just shows you hidden files and toggles the ability to view them easily. If you want something that will remove all traces of an installed App, see App Cleaner. That said, it's not clear what issue you're having, if any.

  • I'm looking for a way to erase information in Legacy Software and Installations, as they are both really long list.

  • Did you try App Cleaner?

  • Just did, nothing to unistall. For example if I type Compressor (as it is listed in the Legacy Software) App Cleaner doesn't find anything. I'm already using CleanMyMac to uninstall things, and double check with Funter afterward to be sure to delete everything...

  • Try Command R to Refresh the list, or maybe a restart. System Information does seem to cache the results. Personally I don't trust or rely on cleaning apps.
