    I have Software Update telling me there's updates. I don't want to take up extra space by installing them under both accounts (work and personal) on my laptop. How can I share them?

    With rare exceptions, your apps are shared by user accounts on your computer. If you update the app, it's updated for all users.

    As long as the app is in the Applications Folder and not somewhere else???

    Exactly. As I said, with rare exceptions, such as installing in the ~/Applications folder, which most users don't do.
