View Full Version : Appleworks - deleting a document

06-01-2005, 11:29 AM
I am using a computer at work. I must return this computer, as I am retiring. I need to delete documents from Appleworks, and I cannot find anything telling me how to completely delete these documents. Help!!!

Usually just moving the documents to the Trash and then emptying the Trash is sufficient.
Were you looking for a more secure deletion - to protect against someone who is actively trying to recover the deleted document from the traces on the hard drive? If so, you could use the "Secure Empty Trash" that is available in Finder (Panther and later).

I assume these are personal documents that you are talking about - because most companies prefer to keep company-related documents around even after their author has gone.
