How to use WavePad Audio Editor - NCH Software to delete the last few minutes of a recording?

I use Windows 10 fully updated.

I've successfully used WavePad Audio Editor - NCH Software to delete the first few minutes of a recording.

But I've been unsuccessful in using WavePad Audio Editor - NCH Software to delete the last few minutes of a recording.

The key to the success is using right-click 'Select to start' and then 'Delete'

But I've failed to understand how to use right-click 'Select to end' to delete the last few minutes of the recording.

Your help, Experts please.

I have run into a similar problem when I attempt to make a new recording in a new file.

I'll post a new Question on Experts Exchange.

Gordon,
Save the file and then trim it. Trim will let you set both the beginning and the end for removal.

Yes, I got trim to work, Start and End, thanks.

I've now run into an another problem.  I cannot get WavePad to produce a recording.

I get to the stage that a window opens but I there is no sign that a recording is being produced even though I have followed the WavePad instructions. Apparently I should see the audio being recorded.

Late this afternoon, I submitted a new question to Experts Exchange -- or at least I thought I had -- which I hoped you would see and respond to.

Now I'm stuck. Do you have a way to look for a question from me to Experts Exchange?

If so please would you respond to it.

If you cannot see a new question from me, what do you suggest, please?

Thank you

Gordon
