How do I remove a reference in Visual Studio Express?  Adding them is easy, just click website, Add Reference.  But no where in the Express addition is there a remove button and I can't find the indicated AJAX reference in my Web.config file.

In the Solution Explorer Pane (top right by default), click on the "Show All Files" button.  Now expand the References entry, Right click on the Reference you want to get rid of and select "Remove".

I don't seem to have that button, but perhaps that is because I imported my website (no project file) or you have the full version. Given this particular situation, I don't know how to remove these references.
I did a search of the entire project and did find a line in the "AjaxControlToolkit.dll.refresh" file that seems like it might be the culprit of the error message I was receiving: ... assembly reference not found or incompatible.
Do you know how another way to access references when this button does not exist.
