At the time of writing this, you get stuck with a bunch of Google apps added to your Mac’s Launchpad when you install Google Chrome.
- Google Chrome (to be expected)
- Google Drive
- YouTube and
- Google Search
I found this to be annoyingly intrusive and a modification that I didn’t ask for nor agree to. I found it even more frustrating that you don’t simply navigate to your Applications folder to remove the uninvited guests.
Instead, you must navigate to your users folder (Right-click on finder icon –> Go To Folder… –> enter forward slash [/] hit enter), enter your user account folder, find the Applications sub-folder and here we find a new folder named Chrome Apps.
Deleting the Chrome Apps folder removes the icons from Launchpad.
