    I just select and use Delete.

    But make sure you know what these unwanted files are be fore deleteing anything.

    Can you provide a list of these unwanted files, so we could guide you further?

    What do you mean by, "I have many things I dont use anymore"?

    Then you need to use the program uninstaller that is part of the Control Panel, but you need to know what you are uninstalling.

    I would have some one that is knowledgeable of computers help you in this task. If you do not know such of a person, contact one of your local computer clubs, senior groups or even a "Family Research" group, they all seem to have some one that is willing to help out with computers.

    heyya chuck, hope all is finding you well. :)

    Dave pegged it, btw....we need to know what you are trying to accomplish. If it's just freeing up space, that's nice and easy. If you want to get rid of some apps you don't use, we can handle that as well.
