EMPLOYEEI’m hoping that this solved your problem1Generally, Office files (Word, Excel, etc.) can not be deleted in the program, you can delete them in My Documents.
To delete a Word file, go to your Start menu, then My Computer (or if you see it, My Documents), open My Documents, and find the file you would like to delete. To delete the file you can either (a) click on the file and press the Delete key, (b) click on the file and choose File -> Delete, or (c) right-click the file and choose Delete from the drop-down menu.
Windows XP will ask if you want to send the item to the Recycle Bin, click OK. If you change your mind, you can restore the file from the Recycle Bin by opening the Recycle Bin, selecting the file and clicking "Restore the selected items" in the task pane, or choosing File -> Restore, or right-clicking the file and choosing Restore from the drop-down menu.
You can find more information in "The Recycle Bin" section of Chapter 3 of Windows XP Home Edition, 2E (http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/window...)
Or if you're using Windows Vista, it can be found in the same section of Windows Vista: The Missing Manual: http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/978059...
