I cannot fine any "Library" entries. Where is this list that is needed to delete certain elements when wanting to completely delete a program?

    The user Library is hidden in Lion by default.

     

    To see it, hold down the option button while selecting the Go menu in the Finder.

    Matt,

     

    Thanks for the prompt reply. Makes one wonder why after this being easily accessible before that it now has to be such a mysterious element. Wonder who makes these decisions and what justification they have for doing so. Keep up the good work.

    Ray,

     

    Your're welcome.  Happy to help.

     

    My guess is that Apple was finding far too many people messing up their systems by tinkering with the Library folder contents without knowing what they're doing.

     

    Now, at least, one needs to make more of a concsious decision to get in there.
