To delete the file

To delete the file, type “rm -f ” followed by a single

space, then drag the file to the Terminal window and

press Enter. If the Terminal states the file cannot be

deleted because you do not have permissions, then run

the command “sudo !!” (the word “sudo” followed by a

space and then two exclamation points) to re-run the

prior command while prefixing it with “sudo” so it will run

as administrator. Enter your password when prompted (it

will not show when typed), and the command should

now successfully run.

Terminal window (its path should be entered).
