Kathleen,

I am assuming you are concerned about the files listed in File -> Recent Documents as your "...folder icon in Open Office". Unless someone else here knows more, from my experience one cannot delete one file from the file list in File -> Recent Documents. I believe there are two ways to clear all files from this list, but both will clear the entire list and one would have to start over to get a new list without the file you no longer want. Here are the two methods I can think of:

1. "clear" the user profile as described over and over again on this list. But that would clear out everything you have configured AOO for.

2. Use File -> Recent Documents and at the bottom of the list, there is the option "Clear List". Click on that and the entire file history list should then be blank. Of course, you will have to then add the files you do want by opening them.

Note also, that this file list is limited to N number of files, where N is 10 in my AOO. As new files are accessed, the oldest files over N are removed. Therefore, you could use this "feature" to remove the file you don't want, by adding new different files until the unwanted file is scrolled off the bottom.

HTH.

OpenOffice is an application to create and maintain office documents.

Sometimes I write a text or letter whichever you want to call it and do not 
need to keep it anymore. I see no delete option.
You have your Operating System to do the house cleaning.

Please advise?Kathleen Quinlan
