Uninstall the Epic Games launcher from Mac or Windows

Uninstalling the launcher from the Epic Games Store is a simple task, but one that requires some attention from the user. This is because the game client has a habit of running in the background and, therefore, if it is active, it will not be possible to remove it from your computer or Mac.
