Default How to remove unwanted plugins?

I'm sure this has been asked before, and I apologize for asking again, as me and search ain't gettin' along.

How do I remove unwanted/unlicensed/old plugins from a Mac?

Detailed guidance is mush appreciated!

Also.
Know that removing ALL AAX plugin's is Fine. Modern Pro Tools will AUTO-Install all base plug-in's fresh. (Additional installs for Extra Plugs may be required)
Pro Tools current 2018
research the rest of your actual-needed plug-ins and get the latest installers for your licenses.

Be aware that this is just for the aax format plugins. A lot of people when they install a plugin will allow the installer to also install the au/vst/vst3 format plugins as well. They can be found at:
The AU plugin is at location:
/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components

and/or:
Users/your username/Library/Audio/Plug-ins/components

And the VSTs are at locations:
/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST
and or:

Users/your username/Library/Audio/Plug-ins/VST


/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST3

and/or:
Users/your username/Library/Audio/Plug-ins/VST3

Also for the aax format plugins one can move them to the unused plugins folder
