Hello I am noticing my computer getting a little bogged down, so I uninstalled ll the Adobe apps that I no longer use. However they still show up in my Applications tab of my Finder. Just wondering if I am good to Move to trash all those apps in the list I no longer use. (Sidenote I have no projects attached to those apps) just needed for school a couple times. 

Thanks for your help 🙂

PinkSheep, please don't drag unused Adobe applications to the trash can.  Doing so can leave the computer in a state where Adobe applications can not easily be reinstalled.  To remove any installed Adobe applications, please use the process listed in https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/uninstall-remove-app.html.

Thank you for your reply. I did that already. Just wanting to clear it out
of my applications file. Wondering if since I did step one already if that
is safe to do

What you're looking at there is just a folder - a special folder, but still a folder. So you can take a look at these leftover folders in Finder. What do you see in those folders? Do they still contain the original apps, are they empty, is there something else?
