How do I delete a file I submitted in the media tab option?

There doesn't seem to be a way to delete it, nor does it give me the option to submit a different file. I've even logged out hoping that would get rid of it, but it's still there.

Hello  @sn0399  and welcome to the Canvas Community.  Is this an assignment where you needed to record media using Canvas or upload an audio or video file?  I just tested in a sandbox course with test students and as a student I was able to record multiple files in the media upload option of an assignment as well as upload multiple files.  When looking from the student perspective, on the assignment page I see a "re-submit assignment" link.  Is this not visible for you?

From the instructor perspective, I see every version of the assignment submitted.  There isn't a way for someone to delete a file they have already submitted but submitting multiple files should be possible.

If you don't see the re-submit assignment button, you might try opening Canvas in a couple of different browsers, such as Chrome and FireFox.  Sometimes that makes a difference.  If you still don't have luck, I would submit a ticket with Canvas Support to see if they have insight into what you are facing.

I hope this helps and best wishes.
