    Move it to the Trash. Starting with Xcode 4.3, Xcode is bundled as a single application so the old uninstall scripts are no longer necessary.

    Hi Mark,


    I had done what you said but the other three icons (Instruments , Dashcode, Quartz composer) are still there

    also i would like to highight that after deleation i got only like 500MB of disk space

    Dashcode and Quartz Composer are not part of Xcode 4.3.2's application bundle. Deleting Xcode is not going to delete them. You are going to have to remove Dashcode and Quartz Composer separately.


    Instruments is part of Xcode 4.3.2's app bundle so deleting Xcode should also delete Instruments. I do not have Instruments on my dock so I don't know if trashing Xcode removes the Instruments dock icon. Does clicking the Instruments dock icon launch Instruments? Do you have other versions of Xcode installed?
