I learned that on my Laptop identical programs are installed in different locations. For example each in another location. It is useful to leave it this way or should I delete the programs from the other locations in order to have ONE programm in one location only? And in which location should the program remain? I have seen that programs are also installed in the Temporary File.

From what I've seen of it; they're in different locations for different purposes/uses.
I'd be reluctant to delete unless they posed some kind of threat....or there were so many as to cause a lack of space and requirement for more. I tried using a Duplicate File Finder prog.....but ultimately the decision-making resided with me. In that instance, I decided to "play it safe" ! Regards
