    Okay, so when I first got my Mac I wanted to put the applications folder in the dock. But I copied it to the desktop first. And then I realized I didn't need to do that. So I put the folder back into the App folder. Now I want to delete them and I need to know if it's okay. Because they seem to be duplicates...but I'm not sure. Help please...:(

    You should be able to delete almost all duplicates as the user specific data is stored under Users/You/Library/Application Support/name of the application.

    Some applications store some data in its own package (the application), so it may be best to delete the applications you didn't use.

    Otherwise I don't think of any problem that could occur.
