When I got an iMac retina I was invited to transfer my files from my old device to the new, which I did.
I now find that all the applications have been copied over as well, so I now have 2 lots of each which is quite annoying when looking in finder.
I cannot delete either of them by any of the means given on the internet.
What does not work:
a) dragging to bin from finder – just pops back
b) Right clicking does not give a delete option
c) One suggestion was to use 'application preferences' but this does not seem to exist on my iMac.
d) Another was to use easi*** but the mac refuses to open that app.
I would be grateful for any suggestions that actually work.
