Thanks for your help. In fact, the way to do it is rather simple. First, go to "Computer" icon on the homepage, which will give the file list. Select pictures. When they appear, click on the photo or photos that you want to delete. A delete icon will appear on the bottom of the screen. Click on it and voila!

Right-click and choose "Delete" from the menu.

Thanks, but right click + delete does not eliminate photos.

Is a Delete option even available by using right click?

Where are you viewing these photo's (program name or whatever)?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

As this is a double post and one might get removed I've posted the response from keltonknight (from the other thread) on here:

=========================================
The photos are in files > photos. Clicking on the photo highlights it but will not delete it when I hit the delete button on the keyboard, nor does a "delete" option appear. Same result if I right click along with hitting the delete key and same result if hit Ctrl key and delete (all suggested by those trying to help solve this problem.)
=========================================

Windows 8 tiles screen complicates things rather. If you go to the C drive on the desktop and then work through to "Pictures" are the offending photo's there? If so is there a right click option which shows Delete?

The path will be via "Users > <Your name>". Anything you see elsewhere is most likely just a convenient library rather than the actual picture files. I'm still not 100% sure where you are actually looking.

Sounds simple but I still can't exactly simulate it. I'm on Win 8.1 using a tower rather than a laptop. "Homepage" is normally taken to mean the page your browser (IE or whatever) goes to. So I guess you either mean the Desktop or the Start Screen (one with tiles on it). By either method I found no delete icon. Wouldn't it be great if we could actually see across the distance LOL.

I'm not using cloud storage - just wondered if you were, which could make all the difference.

"Click on it and voila!"
Err.. does that mean you've fixed it?
