Delete Files from Windows 8
Edited by Lukward Thomason, Crystal, Eng
Hi, you're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to delete files on a Windows 8 computer.
The first thing that we're going to do is create a file to delete for the sake of the tutorial. We're going to do this by right-clicking on an empty space, hovering over "New" and clicking "Text Document". To delete this, we have several options.
One of them is to right-click on the file and click "Delete".
Another way to delete it is to drag it and drop it on the Recycle Bin.
Another way to delete the file is to select the file and hit "Delete" on the keyboard.
A prompt will ask "Are you sure you want to move this file to the Recycle Bin?"; click "Yes". It will be deleted. There is also a way to delete a file without moving it to the Recycle Bin.
Select the file, then hit "Shift" and "Delete" on the keyboard.
A prompt will ask "Are you sure you want to permanently delete this file?"; click "Yes". It no longer asks us if we want to move it to the Recycle Bin, it tells us that it's going to be permanently deleted.
This concludes the tutorial on how to delete files on a Windows 8 computer. Thank you for watching VisiHow. If you have any other comments or questions, please leave them in the comment section below.
