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:

Thank you.



Click there, go to settings. then

Hope this helps.


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
