    (I have searched about this, but haven't exactly found what I am looking for):

    Once I have downloaded and installed an app, and it appears in my apps folder, can I delete it from my downloads folder (in Finder)? i.e., is what remains in Finder a duplicate?

    Thanks, and sorry if this sounds a bit stupid.

    In some cases, yes, it's a copy. In others, no, it's an installer. The "real" deal is an application.
