Uninstall older versions of PS and LRC

Hi, please is there a way to uninstall really old versions of Photoshop and Lightroom Classic. 

I am on Mac OS12, Monterey.

In the past I have installed new versions but kept the old ones. I have LRC 8.1 and 8.4, and PS 2014,2017, and 2018. I want to get rid of all them now as I have newer versions which work well.

None of these apps now show up in Creative Cloud except PS 2018, for which there is an uninstall prompt.

In Applications, in each of these apps there is an uninstaller. Is using this the only way of removing them, and crucially, will that remove all the bits and pieces in both the Libraries on my Mac? Or will i have to go searching for these to delete them manually.

Any help you can give me is appreciated, thanks.

If this post is in the wrong discussion forum, please point me in the right direction.

I think you upgraded your OS and have applications that are no longer supported on new MAC OS, so there is a high probability that the uninstallers would also not work. In such a case you could try the Creative Cloud cleaner tool. See the following link
