    Default How do you delete a PDF file?

    Title says it all. I opened a PDF file from the web and I cannot figure out how to delete it from my phone after I read it.

    Tanks guys

    does your phone have a file manager in the app drawer, or do you have astro file manager?

    I downloaded astro file manager and deleted it that way. Thanks.

    On another note what else can you do with the file manager. Its great for me on deleting the pdf's like I just did but how else could it benefit me?

    you can make folders for things, maybe you want to have a ring tones folders, or you want to seperate your music, or pictures, , make a family videos folder....you can also use it to sideload apps, maybe you are on our site and you see someone has a direct download to an app, you can download it and use astro to install the app.

    Another option if you downloaded it from the web is to go to downloads in the web browser Menu >> More >> Downloads and delete it from there.

    Or plug into your computer, mount your SD drive, and delete from your computer

    First-Go to your file manager app.
    Then-Click sdcard
    Next-Scroll down to Download
    Last-view your unwanted pdf files and delete.
