Chromebook Files App

How do you delete files that appear in the My Drive > Offline folder?

I'm wondering if that is actually possible, in-so-much as that you are viewing something 'Off Line' so if you did manage to delete the files, they would still be intact within the on-line folders... Maybe that's why there's no delete tab... It's just not practical to do that...
I shall follow this with great interest...

I've actually tried to do what you requested and found the following enabled...
Most options in the list (if not all) were available, including the delete function...

I did deleted a couple of files for test purposes, looked in the bin and found them there... They were immediately restored such reappearing in the 'Off Line' folder and vanishing from the bin...

So yes, I have found that deletion works, as does restoration... Oh JOY... :-)

Hope that's of interest...

Please disregard the previous post... I've been unable to replicate that stated and it's too late for me to delete that contribution... As far as I'm aware, it's not possible to delete files, viewed in the 'Off Line' format...

My apologies...
