Delete a Project in GarageBand 11

I’ve been fooling with Apple’s GarageBand 11 on my MacMini. In the process I created a bunch of test projects, none of which I had any intention of keeping. To my astonishment, I could find no way to delete unwanted projects from within the GarageBand application. Even a Google search didn’t turn up much relevant information, which was equally astonishing. Here’s how I was eventually able to delete the projects.

(This assumes you store your GarageBand projects in the default folder. If you don’t, you’re on your own to navigate to the correct folder in step 3.)

  1. Quit GarageBand (this isn’t really necessary but is a good idea).
  2. Open Spotlight search by either clicking the magnifying glass in the upper right corner of the menu bar or hitting command-space bar.
  3. Type: garageband folder
  4. Hit enter. This should open a Finder window with the contents of the folder your GarageBand projects are stored in.
  5. Select the project(s) you wish to delete.
  6. Hit command-delete to send them to the trash folder.
