Illustrator has a "deleted files" tab but I have no idea how to delete files. They're not saved on my computer or in adobe cloud

Your post is kind of confusing.

 

"Please help me delete an illustrator file IN ILLUSTRATOR."

 

I'm near certain there's no way to do that.

 

"Illustrator has a "deleted files" tab"

 

It does? I can't find it.

 

"I have no idea how to delete files. They're not saved on my computer or in adobe cloud"

 

If they (Illustrator files; that is, files you created in Illustrator) aren't saved, then they weren't written to a storage device, and there's nothing to delete. Can you clarify?

Having those up there on home does not cause any issues, and for most people not worth the effort to remove. If you really want to get rid of them, you can get rid of al your file by resetting your prefs. Then restart Illustrator.

If you export an Illustrator file (I see them as .psd Photoshop files in your screendump) you will see them in this window.

But I must agree, they don't give any information on where they were saved or exported.

If they were deleted, you will get a message that the file does not exist.

Opening an existing file will remove the deleted files.

The Deleted Files tab shows Deleted Cloud Documents.
