Uninstalling PP 2019 if I have 2021

I've been using 2021 since it's release, but whenever I save a project, it shows the PP 2019 icon (see pic below).  I want to remove 2019, as well as 2020, and only have 2021 on my computer.  If I uninstall all the old versions, would it compromise the projects that were saved showing the old PP icons or if they were editing in the old versions? Thanks.

Good call on all the backup stuff.  I've got it all backed up so now it's time to free up some storage.  Thanks for the reply 🙂

That icon doesn't mean anything except that your operating system is associating those files with Premier software.  Feel free to re-associate the files to PP 2021 with Mac Finder or Win File Explorer. 

 

When you're sure you don't need old versions anymore, use your Creative Cloud Desktop App to remove them.

 

Hope that helps.

Thank you, Nancy.  I have reassociated all the files to PP 2021.  If that is all that needs to be done, I'll remove 2019.  Thank you so much for your help.
