Hi. My name's Luke and this is how to eliminate a document. If you'd like to eliminate or delete a document from a computer there's a few different ways to do this. First of all deleting documents that you don't need anymore is important because it frees up space on your computer. The first thing you want to do is go to the document in question and make sure that it's closed, because you can't delete an open documents. Next navigate to where the document's stored. In this case it's stored on my desktop. One method of deletion is to right click on the document, scroll down to where it says delete and then left click. Windows will ask for confirmation before you delete it. Click yes. Next go to the recycle bin as this is only been moved to the recycle bin and is now permanently deleted from the machine. If you'd like to permanently delete it from the machine hit empty the recycle bin. Now, another method for deletion is to highlight the file and then press delete on the keyboard. And again, Windows will ask for confirmation before moving it to the recycle bin. And that's it.
