It used to be updating from one major version to another removed the previous version. 2021 would remove 2020. This would be a problem if you wanted to keep your older version, so Adobe now keeps it by default and now asks if you want to remove it.

 

I think that's a good thing. If something  doesn't work as planned, and you have work that must be completed, having an older version can be a lifesaver, and it is getting updates.

 

If you don't have the space or don't want it, you can uninstall it. Click the three dot menu, choose uninstall and it's gone.

Use the Creative Cloud application to uninstall the older version unless you really think you need both (and you can always revert to older versions clicking on the three dots ... (other versions). 

Little reason to have both installed.

I keep old versions until I'm certain the latest one works right and doesn't interfere with my workflow.   I also keep old versions to support discontinued features or 3rd party add-ons. Adobe only offers 2 latest versions in CC desktop app.  So finding older versions can be a challenge.  

 

I have 5 versions of Photoshop installed.  With ample HD space, it's not a problem.
