Hi. It seems I am unable to download anymore documents onto my tablet. The internal memory is full. How may I delete some of those documents I no longer need? Thanks.

Hi. Yep many thanks. I've pressed down and held for a couple of seconds on each document downloaded and the trash can icon appears in the top right hand corner. I am now able to delete those documents no longer needed and free up some space. Thank you once again for your invaluable help.

Hello, and Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

See if your tablet has a "Downloads" icon, which will list all the files you have downloaded.  Files can then be highlighted/selected and then deleted.

 

If not, go to the Play Store and install one of the many free file manager apps.  My personal favorite is "File Manager HD".  It works similarly to Windows Explorer, and is handy for transferring files wirelessly to and from other devices.

I don't have a 10 HD in front of me right now, but as I recall you highlight the file, then either look for a "Trash Can" icon or tap the options icon (3 little blocks vertically stacked) and look for the word "Delete".
