How do I delete a file or folder?

cPanel includes a Trash folder, which operates the same way as the Windows Recycle Bin. All deleted files are automatically placed in the Trash folder and can be restored to their original positions by a simple click. However, once you empty the Trash folder, the files are permanently deleted.


To delete a file or folder:

1. Navigate to the file(s) or folder(s) that you want to delete.
2. Click on the name of the file or folder to display the item's properties in the top-right corner of your window.
3. Click on the Delete File link.
4. The deleted file or folder is now displayed in the Trash area.
