    I have problems with some of the applications on my system, so I tried to delete the corresponding preference file from Library/preferences but this action is not being completed successfully. So tell me what process I have to undergo in order to delete this Preferences Files.

    Hello Friend

    1)you will open the
    Home folder.

    2)Next you will open the
    library folder inside.

    3)Now open the
    preferences folder inside.

    4)You will find the
    preferences you wish to delete.

    5)Now drag it to the trash or your
    desktop.

    6)Generally most are named like
    "Com.Company-name.application-name.plist".

    7)So now you can see which application it.
