    I have two applications folders on my MacBook. One has more items than the other one. Help please? Should I delete one of them? Which one? Is there a reason for this?

    Thank you :)

    Apparently Adobe (and other apps) add this folder when installing, I'm not sure it should be full though... Have you edited it yourself?

    Not sure what's happened there. The one in your home folder shouldn't be there. You could delete it after moving its contents to the correct application folder.

    Well, it is an officially recognized folder. In 10.5, Apple added the ability to install Applications to your home folder. The folder isn't there by default though.

    I am very curious to know how some of those applications ended up there though.

    Of course, you may not want to overwrite some of the apps in the HD/Applications Folder. :eek: Just move the ones that aren't duplicates! :)
