How can I delete outdated Adobe apps?

As a longtime Adobe user, my Mac OS has accrued a lot of Adobe apps I no longer use or older versions of ones I still use. How do I delete these?

 

For example, in my Mac OS Sonoma library (/Library/Application Support/Adobe/), I have Photoshop CS6 from the old disc days through through the CC years up to Photoshop 2024 in addition to Beta. Which ones can I safely delete without impairing the 2024 and Beta versions? The same is true of Bridge and Lightroom. I also have Dreamweaver and Illustrator to which I no longer subscribe, but which I wish to delete.

 

I have attached a screenshot of the Adobe folder on my computer containing these apps and would appreciate any advice.

all versions are independent of each other.  uninstall those you do not use.

I've run into the same issue and see inside the old Application Folders, the Uninstall App will not run with my current operating system.

To remove these old apps, is it as simple as just moving these Application Folders to the Trash and hitting Delete? I believe this will leave some items in the Library Folders – is there a method to remove these? Thanks.

What's the link to this? I'm on an M1 MacBook Pro. Do I use the CC Cleaner? BTW, I'm trying to get ride of CC 2015 Apps (like InDesign CC 2015). Thanks again.

yes, use that link.  when starting it should offer to remove the versions it detects so you can pick what versions to remove.
