I use List view. The left column contains icons for Applications, drives, etc., and I can add folders and files by dragging them to that column. But I can't *delete* them, either by dragging them out or hitting Delete or Opt-Delete. What do I do?

    If you want to delete selected items, use CMD+delete.

    Ah! The proverbial missing info. Step one is to log into a newly created admin user account and see if the problem persists.
