    Hi All

    I recently installed Microsoft Office for Mac 2016 .... what I'm wondering is can I delete the installer.pkg file? Do I need it now that it's installed?

    Same for Google Drive / Spotify - don't need the dmg anymore?

    Many thanks

    Yes, you can delete those files. They are no longer needed once you have installed the application.

    My pleasure. Sometimes, if you want to uninstall certain (usually large) programs, running the .pkg again is necessary. But you can always download it again if/when you need it.
