I am a new user to this forum. I have a problem with deleteing a file from the "my documents"

This file is unlike any of the others. When I right click this file I am presented with a different pull down menu then any other file. The menu does not provide "delete" as an option. Instead I get "Preview, Edit, print, open with, send to"

It is a picture file. If I try to open this file it goes to "no preview available"

Can someone please advise how to delete this file ?

Hi Chris.

You could try the 'open with' function. Open with Windows Picture & Fax Viewer. Under the image you should be able to use the delete X there. Let us know how you get on.

To delete the file you can also use a third party utility like Delete Doctor or DelinvFile.
