Try highlighting the file, then hit Shift+Delete keys... be aware, that will *delete* the file, not put it in the trash/rubbish bin.

I'll see what I can find about the rubbish bin.

Did you get it working then ?

Yes working fine thanks.  Shift/delete thanks that does the trick.

Don't know where the trash is and I would like to reinstate the word processing and spreadsheet icons.

1) On the 4 Panel home screen, open Files > My Files or Files > My Documents.

2) Hit Ctrl+T to display the directory tree, then in the side panel click Trash.

OR

a) On the 4 Panel home screen, open Files > My Files or Files > My Documents.

b) In the address bar where it starts My Disk:/// replace everything there with trash:/// and hit enter.

The "Trash" directory contents should now be displayed.

That was really useful - I spent ages going round in circles trying to empty the trash bin before I thought of searching the forum.

Many thanks Mark (yet again!)  :)

Not so happy with this widescreen website though  ;)

You're welcome :)

Not quite understanding the "widescreen website" comment though ???
