Where Are Extensions Located?

I would like to delete some of the extensions that are installed. I just don’t know where to look for the extension folder.

    What type of extensions?

    In macOS Mojave, you don’t go to any extensions folder and mess with files like that. For system extensions, you go to System Preferences, Extensions. Here you will find a list of them organized by categories. You can uncheck any one you wish to deactivate it.

    If you want to uninstall it, then you’ve go to find the app that includes those extensions. For instance, I see several Pixelmator extensions. These come with the Pixelmator app. They will always be listed in System Preferences as long as Pixelmator is installed. But I can uncheck them to disable them.

    To uninstall an app, you typically go to LaunchPad. There you can click and hold an app icon until it wiggles. Then you can click the X button to uninstall it. The will take any of its extensions with it.

    Safari has its own extensions system. You can see which extensions are installed by going to Safari, Preferences, Extensions. You can uncheck them here too, or select any one and use the Uninstall button to get rid of it.

    If you are talking about another type of extensions, let me know the specific details and I’ll try to help.
