I'm logged in as System Admin.  There is this entry in a list that I would like to delete but I don't see an option to do this.  There is only option to create new, export.......  How can I do this?  thank you

    hover with the mouse over the item. It should highlight and you should see a drop down arrow to the right side of the highlight. Click the down arrow to show the context menu. One of the options in that menu should be "Delete".

    If that is not what you see, you may need to provide some more information. What list? What item? A screenshot would help.
