I was wondering what the code was to delete files. Like, this one project i'm working on, I want it to delete fiels on load. The files are the texts in C:\Windows\Fonts. Delete the files all at the same time.

psh, don't listen to Gizmo. Just use the "kill" command.

kill "C:\Windows\Desktop\Example.txt"

Kill command works...not for font files though...cuz it has a file access error.

Sure. The proper way to manage your fonts is via the "Fonts" icon in your control panel. You can do this from code too - but I'm starting to think you were just trying to do it from code cause you couldn't do it manually.

No I just wanted to do it thru codes to pretty much learn. And fuck with my friends. Like send them a VB prog that on load it deltes like the common font Times New Roman or Arial.
