Access - Delete Query - Specify FROM table in Design View

I am deleting records from Table A that have the same ID in Table B. In query design view, I have listed all the fields in the grid, with the criteria on the ID field that Table A ID =  Table B ID. Additionally, in the upper table drag - I have linked the ID between Table A and Table B.

Is there a way to specify the FROM requirement in the design view?

There is a "From" in the dropdown in the grid option, but I am unable to select this.

Thanks.

Try with:

     DELETE * FROM Trident_Retro
     WHERE [Employee ID] IN
         (SELECT [Employee ID] FROM [Trident_Retro_Dup IDs])

Do make a backup first.
