    how to delete a Word document

    I have Microsoft Office Word 2007....could anyone tell me how to delete a
    letter which I have previously saved? I can get the letter up, highlight
    the text and then delete, which works just fine....but how do I actually get
    rid of it from the system entirely?

    CoolCat25,

    Click Start and select Documents, look for the file name you gave it either
    in the root of Documents or the Folder you saved it in, right click the file
    and select Delete. Also empty your Recycle Bin after you delete the file.

    All the best,

    Two options.

    First, go to the directory it's located in via Windows Explorer and right
    click on the file, then select "Delete" from the menu. You could also click
    on the file to select it, and hit your delete key. There may be a
    confirmation dialog.

    The other option is through the command prompt:

    cd "C:\Example Directory\documents"
    del name_of_document.doc
