How do I delete a folder, or file, from workspace?

I can't figure out how to delete a folder from the workspace. I created a css file instead of a folder, then created a folder, but it would not allow me to call it css because css already existed. I then downloaded a second normalize.css because I read so many comments about how the old one would not work. I dropped it into the workspace, so now I have two normalize.css files in workspace. Someone suggested right clicking to delete, but I am using a Mac with a track pad and I am about to throw it out! It has no right click that I can figure out, and dragging the file took way more time than it should have.

Hi Sarah,

Right click should definitely work but I'm not sure how a Mac Trackpad works exactly... I'm assuming you're talking about a laptop computer.

For the kind of functionality I'm thinking about, I tend to hold down on the trackpad with one finger and then press the right hand button on my laptop which should open up context menus for deleting items from your workspace.

Hope this helps.

Thank you! I was able to accidentally push something on the track pad that allowed the options to come up. It was a two finger tap/hold that ended up working. Thank you for responding so quickly!
