Use "set boot".
Something like ap: set BOOT flash:/c350-k9w7-mx.122-13.JA1/c350-k9w7-mx.122-13.JA1

The AP should only have one image in flash at a time.  If the AP is autonomous it will have a folder with the HTML files, etc, too.

Delete the image that you don't want to boot from.

The set boot command is only really useful to help you if you brick the AP.

@craigbeck, thank you. i think you are right. I want to delete some file in flash, but i notice it is a folder. I have to enter the folder and delete it. Can you tell how to enter the folder and delete it ?

Quick question... is the AP booting the correct version of IOS?  If so, just leave it as-is - it won't cause a problem.

I am just exploring AP since I am new to it. So it won't cause any problems. Thank you

If you want to enter in a folder you will use "cd" command. Use "delete" for delete a file. Dir for discovering.
