Question: Where are my applications on my mac?

Obviously, I've already looked in that folder and the only thing there is a folder with Google Chrome apps. Is there some setting that hides the files? I don't have a great memory so I can't remember the file folder setups from the past. I appreciate any help.

Mac mini, Sierra

Try a SafeBoot https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201262



It takes noticable longer to boot into safe boot mode, as the the system cache/launch service data base files are rebuilt.


After it is complete boot to log in screen, reboot as normal and test.

My computer's been backing up with Time Machine and it filled up hoops. My backup is currently a hundred gigabytes.

How do I get to that and make it smaller? Matter of fact I just want to wipe it out and I want to start a different backup system.
