Umm, the same way you delete any other file in Windows.

Are you having a particular problem?

after you create a new file and import either a DXF or Bitmap ,work with it and find out its not good quality how can you delete it ? every time you open the program its there to load if you want to. I just want to get rid of it. I know it sounds like i don't know how to right click in windows but i do. That does not delete it

AFTER - you delete the windows file, it will still show in RECENT documents in Vectric.
By the Way - you do not delete it in Vectric.
You need to delete it in Windows explorer or some other file manager program.

Sooo - AFTER - you delete the file in windows,
Just click on the file in the Vectric recent list. It cannot open because you deleted the windows file, and you will get a message, something like - cannot find file.
At that point it will no longer be displayed in the recent list.

Just because it is displayed as a recent file list does not mean that it actually exists.
It just means that it is something you recently worked on.

Ok Thank you so much for clearing this frustration up for me . It may be simple for some but it wasn't for me.
