Deleting Files from within the File Browser

If a file is so vile that it doesn’t even deserve to be sorted, you may want to delete it altogether just to cut down on clutter (and save drive space). There are a number of different ways to delete files—all of them simple.

Deleting Photos

If you burned a CD when you first inserted your memory card (and I know you did, because you know how important it is to keep your digital negatives safely stored), you can safely delete any photo you don’t want. You can do this as easily as clicking on the offending thumbnail and pressing the Delete key. You’ll get a warning dialog basically telling you that if you continue this madness (by clicking Yes), Elements will actually move this file from the folder where it resides and put it into the Recycle Bin until you choose to empty the Recycle Bin.
