Note: There may not be a Discord folder in the second file (/Library/Application Support). If there isn't, that's okay!Next, open your Applications folder. Find Discord and drag it to your Trash. Finally, empty your Trash! If your OS tells you that the file cannot be deleted because it's still in use. Open up the Activity Monitor and terminate all instances of Discord. Restart your system.
