You can manage all the personal files in your Canvas account in the Canvas Student app. If necessary, you can manage My Files to clear up space within your course account.
This lesson shows how to edit or delete a file. The steps to edit or delete a file folder are the same.
The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.
