Hi, i just wanted to uninstall complete gog from my macbook (monterey) and i saw, the GOG Galaxy was deleted, but GOG Overlay and GOG Updater is still visible in my Launchpad. So i try to find these in my Finder / Application, but no sign of it. Can someone tell me, how can i delete both of these garbage files? Thank you.

Thank you, but my trashbin is empty. I thought there will be some information from GOG. No way to delet it.

Hey, there. I've got the same issue where even after deleting the GOG Galaxy app, the GalaxyUpdater and GOG Galaxy Overlay apps were still present in the Launchpad. A quick search with the main Finder search bar for file names that contain the word "gog" gave me 4 search results:
- A file with the name com.gog.galaxy.commservice.plist in /Users/Shared/GOG.com/Galaxy/redists/com.gog.galaxy.commservice.plist
- A folder with the name gog in /Users/Shared/GOG.com/Galaxy/WebCache/48945258496302119/gog
- An executable with the name GOG Galaxy Overlay in /Users/Shared/GOG.com/Galaxy/redists/overlay/GOG Galaxy Overlay.app
- A folder with the name GOG.com in /Users/Shared/GOG.com
Deleting these cleared the Launchpad from GOG Overlay and GOG Updater entries for me. Hope that helps!
The bigger problem is that neither of these icons should show up in Launchpad at all.

GOG Team - Please make these two icons invisible to LaunchPad, as neither of them do anything at all.
