Do you want to know how to uninstall steam or a game on steam?

If you want to uninstall steam, drag the steam app in the trash and delete Steam Content in the Documents folder.

If you want to uninstall a game from steam, right click on the game in steam and click delete local content.

First here: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_...3329-WUJN-5636

After that you will want to check your Home folder for a new Applications folder where little launcher files (not super big) like Portal will have been installed. This is not the Applications folder on you Macintosh HD/Applications. It is ~/Applications, in your home folder, just like Documents or Photos or Music or Movies.

Secondly check in your

~/Library/Application Support

for any game or company that you downloaded games for. (Example if you downloaded the Torchlight demo you will need to delete the "runic games" folder from ~/Library/Application Support, which contains all of the saved games and setting data)

If you are not sure about a folder in the Application Support... don't delete it, better safe then sorry.

To remove everything, Run these commands in terminal

Remove the .app
Code:
rm -R /Applications/Steam.app
Remove the support files
Code:
rm -R ~/Library/Application\ Support/Steam/
Remove the Content
Code:
rm -R ~/Documents/Steam\ Content/
If you have Torchlight installed - Remove torchlight content
Code:
rm -R ~/Library/Application\ Support/runic\ games/
