    I am new to Macs, my MBA being my first.

    I LOVE the concept of a program being contained in a single 'file' that you install by dragging into the applications folder.

    Now that I am used to this setup of one file per program... Office 11 and Photoshop are driving me nuts... EVERY other program has a single icon in the applications folder... Office has like 12, I hate it!

    I've uninstalled, I think... but I still see icons and crap everywhere (documents, etc) any help REMOVING all of it?

    Thanks

    First, I think you were misled by the impression that you can uninstall a program on a mac by simply dragging the entire program folder to the trash. It works for some programs, but most of the time, you won't clean up every leftover file in other places such as "library".

    Like Windows system, it's better to use an uninstallation program to remove your applications. On top of my head, I'd recommend "TrashMe".
