How To Delete the .VHDX After Deletetin a VM

Hello.

I noticed that when I proceed to delete a VM from one of our Hyper-V servers, the Virtual Disk File still lingers in the default folder (C:\Users\Public\Documents\Hyper-V\Virtual Hard Disks\).
Is there a way to tell Hyper-V that I don't really want this file anymore instead of doing it manually?
If not, what would be the best practices steps to get rid of this VHDX file?

Thanks as always.

Delete them manually. Hyper-V Manager does not remove the VHD/VHDX files for safety reasons.
