You can uninstall a virtual machine by deleting its files.

One method for uninstalling a virtual machine is to use the Finder to delete the virtual machine package.

Unless you specify a file location for a virtual machine when you create it, Fusion saves the virtual machine package to a default location, which can vary. See Default File Location of a Virtual Machine.


Shut down or power off the virtual machine.

Exit Fusion.


  1. In the Finder, browse to the virtual-machine location, such as the default your home directory/Virtual Machines folder, and select the virtual machine to uninstall.
  2. Move the virtual machine package file to the Trash.

What to do next

Open Fusion. If you see the uninstalled virtual machine in the Virtual Machine Library, right-click it and select Delete.
