Mac OS X Now that the Mac App Store has been snuck installed onto your machine alongside Mac OS X 10.6.6, you might be wondering - is there some way to remove that monstrosity of an application from my Mac? While it's not officially supported, it does seem like Apple has taken this scenario into account.

I'm not sure if you're trolling or not...

Anyway, Here's how I "got rid of*" the App Store after browsing it a few times.

1. Click-hold on the App Store icon that was deposited on my dock.
2. Drag it up until it turned into a little "paper ball"/"poof"
3. Let go.

* Obviously I didn't really remove it from my system, but if I did want to, I could drag it from the applications folder to the trash, and not need a keyboard shortcut. Though Thom's way is more thorough, I find it's easier to just get it out of my way.
