If it concerns files you can simply leftclick once on the file to select it and than press the Delete button and it will be moved to your trashbin. A rightclick on a file also provides a menu where you can select to delete the file. Rightclick on your trashbin and you'll find the option to empty it. If you want to avoid using the trashbin but directly delete files, press shift and delete on the selected file. Be aware, by using shift and delete you cannot retreive the file, by using the trashbin you can restore accidently deleted files.

Please let me know if this solved your problem.
