I'm a CC subscriber since 2018, update regularly. I have Photoshop V21.2.10 (update available) and V22.5 (Updated recently). Should I delete the first to save space on my computer? Why are there 2?

When updating major versions e.g. 21.x to 22.x the CC app allows you to keep older versions. This is good practice as it allows you to still use the older version if you encounter a bug in the new.

If you are short of space you can uninstall the old but the safest way to do that, and avoid any issues with file associations, is to uninstall the latest (v22) then uninstall the earlier (v21) both using uninstall in the CC desktop app. Then reinstall the latest, again using the CC desktop app.
