How much hard drive space do you have available? If there is still plenty of free space, then don't fix what isn't broken. You can use TreeSize to see how space different folders are taking up on your hard drive if you are really determined to reduce the size.

It appears that you're using the ADMIN account as your main account. If that's the case, that's why the ADMIN folder is "huge".

Check the "downloads" folder under the administrator account. Is it full? If yes you can delete what you don't need any more and move the rest to another hard drive, or at least, another folder on the same drive.

It matters not how straight the gate,
