Do you want to delete old Quickbooks company files you don’t need anymore? How do you do that?
You do it through Windows, not QuickBooks. If you don’t know where your files are located (press F2 in QuickBooks to see where you keep your files) then you can open My Computer (or equivalent in your version of Windows), and open up the folder where the old company files reside.
It is often in a place like C: / Documents / Intuit / QuickBooks / Company Files
For each of your old companies, you’ll see a few files (QBW, ND, TLG, maybe others). You can select each of those files that has your company name, and press the Del key to delete them.
It would probably be a good idea to backup up those files before you delete them! Just in case!
Afterwards, those companies won’t show up in QuickBooks on your list of available companies. Those files will probably go to your Recycle Bin until you empty it, but don’t assume you can restore them back to good working order. Don’t delete them unless you’re really ready to see them go away for good.
