I can't find a way to delete my files

Helpful | Level 5

I am not sure whether I am going crazy but for the life of me i cant see how to delete a photo I have added to a folder.  I created a new shared folder for someone who wants to use my photos for their book.  I started uploading them and then realised some of them were .NEF (Nikon raw files) extensions and so went to delete them.  I have looked all over the interface for a trash can or a delete button, I have right clicked .. NOTHING!! I am using a mac.  Would really appreciate some help

Hey @kwd2019, thanks for keeping us in the loop!

It sounds like the deletions just took a bit of time to be applied, but I'm glad to hear that you've got everything under control.
