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.

Apologies for the typo in your name

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
