Where are the IDEs located on my hard drive?

The default locations depend on your operating system:

  • Windows: %LOCALAPPDATA%\JetBrains\Toolbox\apps
  • macOS: ~/Library/Application Support/JetBrains/Toolbox/apps
  • Linux: ~/.local/share/JetBrains/Toolbox/apps

How do I uninstall an App installed by the tool box?


Hello Aman,

There is a button to uninstall an individual IDE. Please see the screenshot:

I would like to manually add a file for live template but I am not able to locate the config/templates folder of IntelliJ installed by Toolbox (on mac)....

Where can I find it?


Hey Martin,

Apologies for the delay.

If you go to IDE settings in Toolbox, there will be a section to set config directory and view a default one for your system. Please see the screenshot below. Hope that helps.



I would like to use newest jidea in some cli script, where can I get a path to always newest executable of the jidea? 

can the toolbox provide some link on the always newest version if program installed? (such link would be automatically updated when program is udpated)


Please see Shell script name field on the IDE settings page in Toolbox.



I recently installed intellij through the toolbox on my os x system. I can run it thanks to the toolbox fine, but not through the regular "applications" folder. I use spotlight and alfred app frequently, so this is kind of bothersome. Is there a fix to this.


Thanks Peter



Where is the location of System and config directory path in windows operation system in the JetBrains tool tip box



After I decided to remove JetBrains tools box, my Intellij installation was also gone. Common, seriously??? 


How can I fully uninstall JetBrains ToolBox application, including all of it's settings and registry edits? There is no occurrence of it in my control panel's add / remove programs and the 'uninstall' option on the toolbox launcher sends me to the add / remove interface, which isn't at all helpful.

My intent is to retry with a clean install, since IDEA Ultimate has broken code-completion (cant even find 'System' and perhaps other issues that i did not bother to try after noticing that code-completion was inoperative.

What folders do i need to find & delete and which windows registry keys are set in the install of toolbox app?

Thank you for your help.


I tried changing the Tools install location in the Toolbox settings to a folder on the D drive, but when I hit apply, it just closes and resets to the previous location. I was able to change folder on the C drive. Is this by design?
