+<title>Deleting Files and Folders</title>
+If you don't want a file or folder any more, you can delete it.
+When you delete an item it is moved to the Trash folder, where it is stored until you empty the trash. Items stored in the Trash folder can be restored to their original location if you decide you need them, or if they were accidentally deleted.
