Hi, my name is Luke and this is "how to permanently delete a saved item on my PC." If you'd like to delete an item from your computer, you can do it by right-clicking on the item, and then left-clicking on delete. You can also do it from the keyboard just by hitting the delete key. Windows will ask for confirmation before deleting. Hit yes. This will move the item to the recycle bin. Open up the recycle bin. Here, you can restore items that you might choose you don't wanna delete, or hit empty the recycle bin to permanently delete these items. Windows will, again, ask for confirmation. Please note, however, that experts can remove your hard drive and still may be able to recover these deleted items. The only way to fully delete your hard drive is to format it, but this will delete all data on the hard drive, and that's it!
