I am not computer savvy, and will need step by step directions.
Please give me huge space    :)
I am an artist and photographer.
I want to install the disc and its info for a new camera.
This will be the third [at least] installed.
I have never cancelled previous installations.
Surely that's a start.
How do I get rid of unwanted stuff!

First, if you have deleted stuff before it's probably still in your trash, so make sure your trash is emptied.

Second, We can't tell you what to delete, that's up to you, but essentially find the stuff you want to delete and delete it either by selecting it and deleting or dragging to the trash and emptying the trash.

As you are a photographer, my guess is you have a lot of hi resolution pictures which will take up a tremendous amount of room. If you wish to save these, your best bet would be to get an external hard drive and save the pictures on to that

How do I find the previous installations to delete them

2.
I have a list of stuff in Finder:
      Safari ... Recent Items ....Aplications
How can I send you this list so you can tell me what is redundant or not needed?
For instance there are two File Zilla. app
Is this because of updating?
If so, how can I tell which to delete?

It sounds like you need more hands-on help than most in this forum will be able to provide.
