    What do you mean when you say you can't drag them to the trash? Is it giving you any kind of error message when you do that, or only when you try to empty the trash?

    Is this a PC or an Apple Mac? The way of deleting files in general are somewhat different, no matter where the files are placed. In many ways though, you can always regard the computer desktop as just another folder on your computer, but since the desktop is more visually present than most other folders on a computer, one can easily get confused.
    Let me know; PC or Mac, and I'm sure I can help out!

First close any application that you may have open that used the photo...or that you used to view or edit the photo.
The problem could be that the application or photo was in use. Usually it won't allow you to delete a file that is in use by a program.
Once you are sure that the applications are closed. then click on the photo (if this is a Mac) and press and hold down the the apple command key (one on each side of your spacebar) then hit the delete key. The item should disappear...(it moves it to the trash)
Or you can just drag and drop it to the trash.  
Hope this helps.  Have a great day!

I inadvertently downloaded a search engine asK while attempting to access IRS files. Now it has taken over firefox


https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/refresh-firefox-reset-add-ons-and-settings
What does the refresh feature do? All of your Firefox settings and personal information are stored in a profile folder. The refresh feature works by creating a new profile folder for you while saving your important data.
Add-ons which are normally stored inside the Firefox profile folder, such as extensions and themes, will be removed. Add-ons stored in other locations, such as plugins, will not be removed but any modified preferences (such as plugins you have disabled) will be reset.
Firefox will save these items:
  • Bookmarks
  • Browsing history
  • Passwords
  • Open windows, tabs and tab groups
  • Cookies
  • Web form auto-fill information
  • Personal dictionary
These items and settings will be removed: Note: Your old Firefox profile will be placed on your desktop in a folder named "Old Firefox Data". If the refresh didn't fix your problem you can restore some of the information not saved by copying files to the new profile that was created. If you don't need this folder any longer, you should delete it as it contains sensitive information.

How do u delete a snapchat account.


According to http://appamatix.com/delete-snapchat-messages-conversations:

If you're interested in deleting the Snapchat messages you either sent or received while using the app all you need to do is a few steps and you'll be saved from a potentially embarrassing moment that no one wants to be stuck in.
Follow these steps to delete the messages permanently on your phone. Keep in mind that this won't delete the messages on someone else's phone it will only be on yours. This is because Snapchat downloads all messages on people's phone and not on the Snapchat server. This is still a lifesaver, though for when you are suddenly aware of people looking over your shoulder (yes, I do frequently take public transit, why do you ask?) or else you are nervous about somebody getting their physical hands onto your physical phone.
  1. Open the Snapchat app and you'll see a little Snapchat ghost at the top center.
  2. Tap on the ghost and you'll see your Snapchat icon with your name and score. Tap on the gear icon at the top left to get into the settings.
  3. From there, scroll down to Account Actions and tap on "Clear Conversations" in that menu.
  4. You will see a list of all of your messages with an x right next to it. You will get a message that says "Are you sure you want to clear this conversation?" and you can get the option to clear and clear and don't ask again.
  5. You could alternatively choose to clear all of your messages at once if you don't want to have anyone see your messages at all.
NOTE: When you clear the conversation on your feed, it won't delete any saved or sent messages in your conversation. You can delete your saved messages as well, however you can't delete messages that have been sent to someone else.

How can I get the pictures back, after I've deleted them and emptied the waste bin?


If you have emptied the trash your only hope is to use Recovery software such as Wondershare, or Data Rescue. These are third party programs designed for data recovery in your situation.

When i try to save excel files to desktop they aren't saving the latest version,...


Hi,

I don't think your computer is having an issue with capacity. I don't exactly know what the problem is, because it could be many things. However, if you want your Excel files on your desktop that you keep modifying, you can make a folder on your desktop, and then save them into that. It may be a good idea to delete each earlier one when you save new ones. Hope this helps!

You can un-check the locked option on the pictures by using the get info option on each image file. This is done through the Finder on a Mac. Alternately, if they are in the Trash: If an item in the Trash is locked, press the Option and Shift keys when you choose Empty Trash to delete it.
