Hi,

Here are the instructions to get rid of Google Notifier:

  1. Open the Applications folder on your computer.
  2. Find the Google Notifier icon.
  3. Drag it to the Trash

If you get the error "The item “Google Notifier” can’t be moved to the Trash because it’s open" you'll need to quit Google Notifier before uninstalling:

  • If you see a Gmail icon at the top of your screen near the time, click the Gmail icon and select Quit All Google Notifiers. Then try to drag it to the Trash
  • If you don't see a Gmail icon, follow these steps:
  1. Open the application Activity Monitor
  2. In the search bar at the top of the window, type google notifier
  3. Double-click Google Notifier under "Process Name."
  4. Click Quit and again choose Quit when asked to confirm.

not sure i would have found that within the decade.

thanks much.
