A basic understand of Linux is required.
You need to learn the command line tools such as rm.

Here is a tutorial.

You could also install and use a file manager.

Hi Maxbillion
Linux is not Windows. Although some Linux distributions try to look and/or behave like Windows,
Tinycore is not one of them. Tinycore is a bare bones system designed to be customized by the
user.
To delete a file you can:
Open a terminal and enter   rm filename
Use AppBrowser to install a file manager and delete it using that

Thanks to the file manager all my problems are solved.
