HOW DO i DELETE A FILE


Fully delete or just remove from access? If the former,
locate file on harddrive, RIGHT click on it then choose 'Delete'.
If the latter, you will need to install a 'shredder' or 'secure delete' program. Once that is done, start the shredder program, locate the file, left click and hold to drag and drop the file into it.

How can i delete unwanted files in my pc? how to clean my hard disk


I suggest you try Duplicate Filter from http://www.duplicatefilter.com, which is a powerful tool to assist anyone in cleaning up the contents of their personal hard drive or corporate network. You'd be surprised just how many unwanted or duplicate files you could find forgotten in an obscure documents folder.
Here are the ways to find and delete duplicate files:
1. Click "Add Folder" button in "Find Duplicate" section to select the folders you wish.
2. Select Compare Mode: Check by Name+Size, by CRC+Name, by CRC only, by Name only, by Size only.
3. Click "Scan" button and start to find duplicate files.

4. After searching the duplicates, you can choose to delete them, move or copy them to a different folder, or rename them in their current location. 83007d66-f221-4e67-84c1-ce94b6648e4e.jpg Duplicate Filter Free Software to Find and Remove Duplicate Files

Outlook 2007 incoming emails keep coming from the server multiple times


If your getting duplicate emails from the same server, either #1 you've configured multiple email accounts for the same email address or #2 see below.
You will find these setting under TOOLS/ OPTIONS/ MAIL SETUP/ Click Email Accounts, under the Email tab, click "change". This will list all accounts. delete any duplicates for the same email address.
#2 If there are no duplicates in Outlook its possible you've told your email server to forward your email to you.
What Outlook does is retrieve this mail from the server, so doing both would result in duplicates as well
Let me know if this helps

I have a maxtor external hard drive on drive f,I have moved my home movies onto this drivefrom my documents,if I then try to delete these from my documents it also removes them from my f drive to,the idea...


Now, when you "copied" the files how did you do it? Are you sure you didn't create shortcuts, then transfer those to the new hard drive?
If you're not sure, try opening two windows, 1 being your "my documents" folder and the other being the "f" drive. Put them side by side. Now highlight all the files you want to copy (hold down the ctrl key on the keyboard to make multiple selection) and once all the desired files are highlighted, drag them over to the other open folder (f drive). This should make independent duplicates of all the files. 
I apologize if i sounded condescending, i'm just unsure of your skill level.

I have 5600 photos in my iphoto at present, but for some reason around a third of these are duplicated. this happened when I changed macs and nearly lost them all, was a nightmare. But. my question is, how...


if the mac has altered the filename to account for the duplication then you cant , ie , field of cows and field of cows1 is the same photo but a different file name , the mac sees two files , you see two of the same photo,Sorry , May be its a good thing. now you can go through all those photos and remember the days.

alternately , try using search function looking for filenames with the duplicate extension number , ie , search/jpeg/filename/1

How to delete multiple things off my acer laptop at the same time


A good place to start is...

Start>Run>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs

You can uninstall lots of programs here.

If you are trying to delete, lets say a bunch of files at once, here are some useful shortcuts.

Ctrl+Click will highlight everything you click on then you can hit delete once.

Click one item then Hold Shift+Click to select all files inbetween your first and last click.

Drag a box with the left mouse button to highlight multiple icons/files then hit delete.
