    Hi, Welcome to TSG!!

    Open My Documents, click with the mouse on the file you want to delete, press the delete button.

    or RH click & select delete.........or to bypass the recycle bin entirely, hold down the shift key while either hitting the delete key or the process I just mentioned......

    A word of caution: Be careful if you bypass the recycle bin.....you won't be able to recover the file w/o other software or using the undelete command.......even then it's not a guarantee that you will be able to recover the file intact.
