    I'm having trouble installing any trial versions of PS on my macbook, it always says licensing has expired (even though this is the first time I have installed it on this laptop), I've had my laptop a few weeks from new.

    So I'm wondering whether it would be possible to remove all traces of PS on my laptop to sort of start from scratch again?..

    thanks

    I guess using an app like AppZapper would work. But again, these are huge apps, and they might leave stuff behind even with an app uninstaller.

    They have their own uninstallers. Use them and check your Utilities folder for other stuff installed by the apps. You might also want to search for their .plist files if they're left behind.

    AppCleaner might do the job. But use Adobe's uninstaller first.

    Use Adobe's own Cleaner Tool

    Apps like AppCleaner, AppZapper are useless for this.
