delete files from the Desktop or Skydrive on a Win 8 tablet
Trying to delete some files from Win 8 tablet. I swiped all over the screen edges, with no "delete" option appearing as it does with photos. What's hard, here, Microsoft?

This is weird, but I'm going to answer my own question since I can't find another instance of its being asked here. Display the on-screen keyboard. LIGHTLY tap the file icon you're trying to delete. If you tap too hard it'll open the doggone thing. When the icon is highlighted, hold down "control" and press "D" on the keyboard. When I did this, the file icon disappeared, so I assume it's deleted. Those of us who've been using Windows since 3.1, are familiar with "Control"+"D." as a method of deleting something.
