    Question

    In my Home folder the application folder is empty, but in the left bar my application folder has all my apps. Is this normal because to me that's strange.

    If you install some apps "for this user only" they install in the ~/Applications folder. Most apps are available to all users, so they reside in the /Applications folder. If your ~/Applications folder is empty, you can safely delete it.
