How to erase icons?

Answered by Antonio Sutton

To erase icons from your computer, you can follow these simple steps:

1. First, locate the icons you want to delete. These icons are usually found on your desktop or in specific folders on your computer.

2. To select multiple icons at once, you can click and drag your mouse cursor over the icons to highlight them. Alternatively, you can hold the Ctrl key on your keyboard while clicking on individual icons to select them one by one.

3. Once you have selected the icons you want to delete, right-click on any one of them. This will open a context menu with various options.

4. From the context menu, select the “Delete” option. This will prompt a confirmation dialog box asking if you’re sure you want to delete the selected icons.

5. If you’re certain you want to delete the icons, click on the “Yes” or “OK” button in the confirmation dialog box. This will permanently remove the selected icons from your computer.

6. Alternatively, you can also delete icons by dragging them to the Recycle Bin. To do this, simply click and drag the selected icons to the Recycle Bin icon on your desktop or in your file explorer window. Once the icons are dropped into the Recycle Bin, they can be permanently deleted by emptying the Recycle Bin.

7. To empty the Recycle Bin, right-click on the Recycle Bin icon and select the “Empty Recycle Bin” option. This will permanently delete all the items in the Recycle Bin, including the icons you dragged into it.

It’s important to note that deleting icons only removes the shortcuts to the associated files or programs. If the files or programs themselves are still present on your computer, they will not be deleted by removing the icons. If you want to completely remove the files or programs, you may need to uninstall them using the appropriate uninstallation method.

Deleting icons from your computer is a straightforward process. Whether you choose to right-click and select “Delete” or drag them to the Recycle Bin, always remember to confirm your actions to permanently remove the icons.
