Each version of the program is independent and you can remove the older version if you elect to do so. 

I would deactivate prior to uninstalling.

If you utilize the organizer, this will require attention.

Note that it has been reported that Adobe will market a new version of the software this fall.

Be aware that you can only pass 2019 to your daughter if you buy a full new version of 2020 - or 2021.

 

If you buy the upgrade version then that upgrade serial number is tied to the 2019 serial number. Every time you re-install 2020 (or 2021), the installer will also ask you to enter your 2019 serial number.

 

In other words, when you buy a full new version, you buy a new license. When you buy an upgrade version then you're extending your existing license so you cannot pass on your earlier version.
