Rosetta Stone is language-learning software that claims to teach languages in a more natural manner by using pictures rather than translation to convey the meanings of words. You may need to uninstall the program from your Mac computer because you want to do a clean reinstall or because you no longer require the program. You must find and remove all traces of the software application on your computer. To completely uninstall Rosetta Stone from your Mac computer, you will need to find and delete three different folders.
