How To Delete a File

Dear Computer Lady,

I have Windows XP and in “My Documents” section, I have two old personal letters I want to delete. I have tried all sorts of things, but cant seem to delete them. I originally typed them in Word Pad and saved them at that time… two years ago, and now want to clean out some of my personal documents.

Help~~ Thanks much. June

Dear June,

Here is how you delete a file.

Click on “Start” and then click on “My Documents”.

A window will open showing you the contents of your documents folder.

Locate the file you want to delete, and use one of the following ways to delete the file.

a. Right click on the file, and click on “Delete” in the context menu.
b. Drag the file to the Recycle Bin on your desktop.
c. Click once on the file to select it, then press the “Delete” key on your keyboard.
d. Click once on the file to select it, then click on “File” in the menu bar and click “Delete”.

From the information you have given me, I can only guess at the things you have tried to delete your files. Hopefully, one of these methods will work for you.

Elizabeth
