    In the workspace window, FileView tab, select the file and press <Delete> or select the menu choice "Edit", "Delete".

    Glad to be able to help, thanks for the points!

    About the menu, note that in the right click menu there is no "Delete" choice. I am referring to the main "Edit" menu, where my menu shows:

    and some more...

    If it's not there, you may have a customized version of the menu. Go to "Tools", "Customize", choose "Category": "Edit". In the second line of symbols, you will see a red "cross" or "X" (can't think of a better description). Drag this from here onto the "Edit" menu and place it on that menu. Close the "Customize" dialog and you should now have "Delete" as an option in the "Edit" menu.
