Hi my name is Luke and this is how to erase something from your computer. If you'd like to erase or delete an item from your computer there's two ways to do it. First go to the file that you'd like to delete. You can right click the file and then scroll down to delete and left click. Windows will prompt you before deleting the item. Click yes to delete. You can also left click the item and highlight it. And then press delete on the keyboard. And again Windows will prompt you before deleting. Hit yes. You'll notice that the item has now been moved to the recycle bin. Open up the recycle bin. Here you'll see the item that you just deleted. However it's still on the computer in the recycle bin. If you decide that you don't want to delete it you can hit restore all items. Or you can just select the item and restore that item in particular. If you want to fully delete the item hit empty the recycle bin. This will clear out any items in your recycle bin that are pending to be deleted. And that's it.
