    How do I go about deleting applications? I am new to the forums for starters (sorry guys)... Plus this is my first Mac, I haven't had to delete anything off of it yet and can't quite figure it out.

    My issue: I have two versions of Safari on my computer. Version 4.03 or something like that, and the new 5.02. I know I upgraded to the 5 when it came out and I had assumed I was running that since then. Turns out I've still been running 4, and was having an issue with the "New Tab" not working. Thats when I noticed I wasn't running 5. (if you follow me?)... I just redownloaded 5 b/c i thought it would overwrite the 4 version, but it didn't, now I have two Safari's and when I do a spot light search 2 show up as well with no indicator as to which is which.

    If it matters, I am running Snow Leopard with everything up to date (at least I think? considering I thought this was...)

    Go into your Applications folder, locate both Safari items and select one of them and press CMD+I to open the GET INFO window. There the version is listed. You should be able to delete the older one, though it should have been deleted during the update process, unless you downloaded the older version separately.

    Also have a look at the following links to learn more about Mac OS X:

    Just move the old Safari from the Applications directory to the Trash.
