I can’t find a way to delete files

Explorer | Level 4
I am trying to delete files and folders to free up space (all from my mobile phone) but I do not see any delete option after I have selected the files I’d like to delete.

Hello @Dwhit93!. Thanks for posting. 

Send me a screenshot of what you see after you select the files and I will take you step by step to deleting them from your Dropbox mobile app. 

Thank you. Happy Friday!

I don't think your mobile browser will allow you to edit text in the Community (in this case attach files), like a computer browser would. 

I will give you this Help Center article that offers the steps to delete files via the Dropbox mobile app, since I don't see what you see. 

Let me know if  this worked for you. 

Thank you.
