    Depending on what you want to remove...it may be as simple as dragging it to the trash...and emptying the trash.

    You could also try & use the "uninstall" program...if any of your applications came with one.

    Since this is my first mac. I have a question. I did take some of the apps from the application folder and put them in the trash bin, but does it leave other junk behind; I know in Windows it did and i'm just afraid of that. I want to make sure it's been deleted.
    I downloaded a few things from the Apple website. Nothing big.

    You are correct. Sometimes when applications are installed on a Mac, some files go to other directories (just like in the MS Windows world)...and so sometimes it's difficult to track down all of the individual files.

    If you were trashing files like MP3's, videos, MS Office or Photoshop files...it would be easy. But sometimes completely deleting all files related to an application can be a pain. That's why if you have the original install disk or if there is an uninstaller program already on the hard drive it makes things much easier.
