This does NOT work on the HP Chromebook for Google Docs.  I need to deleted dozens of files and I can only do one by one.  Please HELP.  THANKS!

 

"First, select them by holding down the Ctrl key and clicking the files. Then press the trash can icon in the lower-right of the Files app window to delete all the selected files at once."

Chrome OS does not work like Windows therefore you have to do different ways

On the second link, which I click on the link about delete files and the web page it goes to has nothing to do with deleting files.

 

I looked at the first link and did not find it helpful either.  

 

Could you please simple cut and paste the appropriate steps to delete files from Docs and Spreadsheets?

 

Thanks

Kari

Is this the answer you are suggesting?

Delete a file

  1. In the corner of your screen, select the Launcher 
     

     

     
     

     

     Up arrow 
     

     

    .
  2. Open Files 
     

     

    .
  3. Select the file or folder you want to delete. Note: You can delete files in the Downloads folder, but deleting a file from your Downloads folder is permanent.
  4. Select Delete 
     

     

     
     

     

     Delete.

You can do this with google docs, If you have installed on your pc just control+A and delete all, all files will be deleted.

Do you realize it says how to delete a file not "files?"  I want to delete dozens of file was the question.  I can delete one at a time.

The ONLY way I find it allows multiple is from the launcher and then it should say one click and then SHIFT at the last file you want to delete in that sequence.  But, that was missing in the instruction on the link.  Hopefully this helps someone else who wants to clear space.  Google has informed that they will charge for space consumption at a certain level, so time to clean house.    

 

Thanks.

I noticed it would do multiple from download but this does not allow access to ALL the files and folders on the chromebook.  So where are they and how can I delete them?

 

IF HP can re-open.  I should NOT have clicked solved.

Prior answers did not work on post and internet search is wrong with answer for HP Chromebook.  I need to deleted dozens of files and I can only do one by one.  Please HELP.  THANKS!

 

Going thru the download will not give full access to files/folders in Docs or sheets.

 

I may be sitting here for 20 years if no one helps deleting one by one.  It is crazy.
