How do I remove the standard "files" application in elementary? I already set the new file manager (Polo) as the new default, via the settings. I checked if that worked via xdg-mime query default inode/directory and it shows me that this worked. All that's left to do know is getting rid of the old file manager.

I found out that I can run pantheon via this command: io.elementary.files but there is no package with this name.

Ohh I found it the package name is just pantheon-files :)
