Remove Microsoft Silverlight from macOS

Did you install Microsoft Silverlight on your Macintosh, no longer visit websites which need it, and are tired of the pop-ups that ask to update it? Here is how to painlessly remove Microsoft Silverlight from macOS.

Uninstall Microsoft Silverlight from macOS

  1. Use the Finder to open: /Library/Internet Plug-Ins
  2. Delete Silverlight.plugin
  3. Delete WPFe.plugin (if it exists).

Notes

  • The file(s) to be removed are in the macOS “System Library,” not your “user Library.” Use the exact path above.
  • You are prompted to type in your administrative password when you modify library files. In this case, you are deleting files.
