WORD 2013 - How to rename (or delete) a file from file list

In WORD 2007 and 2003, when I brought up a list of files in a folder, I would be able to:
- Press <Delete> to delete a file.
- Right click on the filename to rename it.

Now, with the new file list format (per my screenshot), I find that I can no longer do either of the above.

Please advise as to how I can work around this issue

NOTE: I am now on Win8.1, but suspect the above is an MS Office issue, not a Windows issue.

Thanks,
Steve

OOPS.
My bad.

I just realized that in 2003, I could not delete/rename from the Recent File List. I actually have to be navigating through my directory tree. I guess the different UI for 2013 confused me.

So, no help needed. Sorry for the "false alarm" . :)

Thanks,
Steve
