How the heck do I delete a score in MuseScore on a Windows Surface?

• Oct 17, 2021 - 02:45

I tried right clicking, that didn't work. The computer wouldn't let me drag to my recycle bin either. So what the heck am I supposed to do? I don't want all these scores piling up, especially when I don't need some of them anymore. If you're a tech geek who can't explain things in plain English, don't even answer. I don't have time to read nonsense that I can't understand.


You should be able to delete any of your scores the same way you'd delete any other file. What do you mean when you say it doesn't work? Are you getting some kind of error message?

At the risk of sounding too techy, you need to tell us what you are using, and what you see when you right click. I own a Surface. As you know, or maybe you don't, a single right click renders a window that includes "delete". If you accidently double right click, you get copy options. Can you drag other files to the bin? You don't say. Can you delete other files with right click? You don't say.

I just did both on my Surface without issue. Is it too techy to expect you to learn how to use your computer?
Fortunately, we have time to try to help you. But we need more information from you.

MuseScore files are deleted the same way as any other file on your computer:

1) open your favorite file browser (eg, Explorer that comes with Windows)
2) browse to the folder where your file is
3) select it
4) press Delete

It’s the same way you delete Word documents, photos, etc.
