I'm having trouble deleting simulation files

Hello All,

 

I'm new to this forum and I'm new to Solidworks simulations.  I am working on a furniture piece and I ran a couple really basic simulation, with which i didn't have much success.  But I saw some where that you can set the result file to a user defined place.  So my idiot self place that folder to be the desktop, not realizing that it would export a bunch of random files with random extensions.

 

So now my problem is that I can't delete those files from my desktop because it says they can't be located.  Has anyone else ever had this problem?  I will attach some images for clarification.

 

The first image you can see all the white blank files on the right side of the desktop.

And here's what happens when I try to delete them.

From what I've gathered they're all different file extensions, with a couple .clg files thrown in.  But most are all caps and random letters.

 

Has anyone else ever had this problem or have you ever tried deleting these files before?

 

 

Thanks
