    To unlock the phone swipe the screen upwards.
    Once the phone has been unlocked we will see the Home screen and at the bottom we will see icons. It is one of these icons that we need to access as we need to open up the Applications folder.

    To do that we need the icon located at the bottom of the Home screen and in the middle we can see there is a grid made up of white dots.
    Press down on this icon and that will allow us to enter the Applications folder.

    In this folder we need to find the Photos application.
    This example's application is the last icon on the bottom row. We can see there is an icon of a shape made up of different colors and underneath it says the word "Photos." Your photo applications may be in a different position than this folder's example. Therefore, we might need to search for it and once we've found it, we press down on the icon to enter the application. In this video tutorial, we want to show you how to Empty the Bin in this application. This is because in the Photos application, when we delete something it is not completely deleted. Rather it goes to a Bin where it stays for some time and then it is permanently deleted. This gives us the opportunity to restore files if we change our minds later. We can also clear the Bin and empty the Bin completely so that all the files in that Bin are permanently deleted. This will create more space and save us some room and just clear away some clutter that we don't need anymore.
