Deleting a File
Eventually, your computer will become full of files, and you’ll have a hard time organizing and storing them all. You can delete any files you no longer need. Using the steps in the previous task, you can also make room by copying files you want to keep but don’t need to work with again, to a disk. Then you can delete the files from your hard drive as shown in this task.
Right-click the file you want to delete and then click Delete.
Confirm the deletion by clicking Yes.
The file is deleted and no longer appears in the file list. (The file is actually moved to the Recycle Bin.)
