How can I delete a file on my iOS device that I downloaded from my iCloud? I just want to keep the Preview on my iOS device without using my storage iOS for the entire file. This means that the file is still in the iCloud and available to be downloaded to any device.

In practice, I want to be able to scan and download through my documents located in my iCloud and once I didn't need them on my iOS device I would like 'load their return to the cloud' to my storage of the iOS device is not used.

Thank you in advance to the community!



The only way I found to do that once a file has been downloaded is to remove it and add it again through either from Finder on Mac or

  • How can I change an icon with a custom icon that is downloaded from the internet (i.e. not already in the file "bowse icon")

    I want to customize my desktop icons to make it easier to read. When I right click, select Change icon, select Browse, I see all the icons I want to use. I downloaded a custom on the internet and saved on my desktop icon, but I don't know how to replace the old icon by this news.

    Hi Larry,

    Thanks for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand from your description, that you cannot change the folder icon with a custom icon uploaded to the Internet.

    I'll be happy to help you. This problem could be caused because you may not have selected the right path or the location of the file that you downloaded or the downloaded file may be damaged or does not work or does not exist.

    I suggest to follow the steps below and we update on the State of the question.

    I recommend you to check or find the location of the file or path where exactly you downloaded and to check whether the file is actually present in the location and also check the file is fully downloaded and work very well.

    a. Subsequently, navigate to the folder that you change the icon and right-click on the folder.

    b. click Properties, click the Customize tab, click change icon, and click Browse.

    c. Select the correct path inside the menu drop-down or enter the correct path manually from the exact location of the downloaded file.

    d. open the file downloaded for the icon, choose the name of the file and click Open to select the file, and check to see if it helps you.

    If the problem persists, then I suggest you to download the file once more on the Internet and save it in a new folder and check the issue.

  • How can I delete a file in use by demon updater?

    How can I delete a file that says it's in use by Daemon updater.exe?

    I have a computer with a hard drive of GB 914, who recently said that it is impossible to install a program because the disk is full. While they inspected, I found that it only reported about 200 GB of usage and after you remove files non-essential, I released 57 GB of disk space.

    I made sure to show all files and installed a file tree Locator and found a log of 684 GB file but when I tried to remove it, it said that the file was not in the specified location. Then I manually found the file in system32 tree and he said that it is impossible to delete the file because it is used by daemonupdater.exe.

    can anyone help please?

    Credonem, welcome to the forum.

    I suggest start safe mode to see if that helps with your problem.  Safe mode starts only the drivers and programs needed.

  • How can I delete a file named []


    We could use more information on the way in which the file came to be on your system and what program to assign you it.  In addition, it would be useful to know why you want to delete this file and where it is located (to see if we can learn more about it and its function and perhaps why, you find it difficult to do).  But I'll give a few suggestions based on certain assumptions that I'm going to do about the situation.  If you get error messages or the program starts to him alone without want you to do it, then please tell us that (and are exactly what that error messages and when the program starts).

    If it is part of a program that you no longer want, you need to uninstall the entire program rather than deleting its files (as suggested above by Bruce)- otherwise the pieces of the program will remain in your system files and in the register (and perhaps elsewhere) without good service (and be VERY difficult to find and safely remove later if you want to clean your machine).  If Vista uninstall does not work, try Revo to: , who sometimes works when Vista standard uninstall programs does not work.

    Maybe you do not have permissions or ownership to delete the file (you should receive error messages - if yes, what are they).  Here's how to fix that:

    To view your permissions, right-click on the file/folder, click Properties, and check the Security tab.  Check the permissions you have by clicking on your user name (or group of users).  Here are the types of permissions, you may have:  You must be an administrator or owner to change the permissions (and sometimes, being an administrator or even an owner is not sufficient - there are ways to block access (even if a smart administrator knows these ways and can move them - but usually should not because they did not have access, usually for a very good reason).)  Here's how to change the permissions of folder under Vista:  To add take and the issuance of right of permissions and ownership in the right click menu (which will make it faster to get once it is configured), see the following article:

    To resolve this problem with folders, appropriating the files or the drive (as an administrator) and give you all the rights.  Right-click on the folder/drive, click Properties, click the Security tab and click on advanced and then click the owner tab.  Click on edit, and then click the name of the person you want to give to the property (you may need to add if it is not there--or maybe yourself). If you want that it applies to subfolders and files in this folder/drive, then check the box to replace the owner of subcontainers and objects, and click OK.  Back and now there is a new owner for files and folders/player who can change the required permissions.  You can change now switched to read-only (even if the main folder indicates that they are always read-only - you can access yourself as the owner).  You can keep them in read-only to other users, customers and administrators even (although they can support themselves and access, if they wish, and it is really not that you can do to stop it except protect the file with a password by using a 3rd party product.)  Here is more information on the ownership of a file or a folder:  To add take ownership in the menu of the right click (which will make it faster to get once it is configured), see the following article:


    If it is an unknown file that you do not know how it got on your system and you are unable to delete in the normal way (which is I guess the case since you posted the question here), can carry by using one of the following free products to remove the file/folder.  Unlocker to: or file Assassin (with or without forcing the deletion: These programs often work when normal functions remove Vista not work correctly.

    I hope this helps.

  • How can I delete temporary files?

    When you click START, then RUN, I type temp and delete the files on all computers in my office.  Almost every one of them now has a list of .tmp files that are unable to remove.  They all start with LAE and range from LAE9F.tmp, LAE13A etc...   There are 19 in total... and they are all in blue, if that means anything.

    When I remove them, I get the message "access is denied. Make sure that the disk is not full or protected in writing and that the file is not currently in use"

    It's my understanding that they are... especially when it's the only thing open on my computer.

    How can I remove them?

    I tried to go back and call the authorities, but to no avail.

    Thank you


    I don't know what these files are, however, all files in the TEMP directory are safe to remove, but you can restart once, just to make sure that there are no "restart to perform this installation procedure" in the waiting.

    Files that are displayed in blue are compressed.

    If the files are older than 7 days, you may be able to remove them using disk cleanup (start > run > cleanmgr.exe > OK).

    Otherwise you can probably remove them starting mode safe mode (F8 tap immediately after reboot sequence starts, before the Windows logo doesn't appear).

    Alternatively, instead of Safe Mode, the following almost always works:

    • Open a command prompt window (start > run > cmd > OK).
    • Navigate to the directory where the files of LAExxx.tmp are located using the cd command.

      CD C:\Windows\Temp {press Enter}

    • Leave the command prompt window, start the task (CTRL + ALT + DELETE) Manager
    • Find explorer.exe in the processes list, select it and click on "end process."
    • At this point, your screen should be empty except for the command prompt window open and the Task Manager
    • In the command prompt window, type the following command

      del *. * (press Enter}

    • Go back to Task Manager, click file > new task (run...) and in the "Open" box type


    • Click OK.
    • Your office should be back to normal. Close the command prompt and the windows task manager and the files should be gone.
  • How can I delete this file which allows my laptop go "standby mode"?

    How can I remove this plug-and-play of windows operating system Manager file the file is umpnpmgr.dll version 5.1.2600.5512 that causes a problem for my laptop in standby mode. I need to remove WRN_POWER_EVENT_SERVICE_VETO. MY LAPTOP IS a TOSHIBA TECRA 5 and operating Wndows XP Professional all updates to this day and has been scanned for viruses.

    It is not a file, it is a message of a piece of hardware attached to your laptop or inside the laptop.  This piece of hardware is refusing the request to enter the mode 'sleep'.  You need to know what hardware is rejecting the request and then either remove, see if the updated drivers will be repaired, or use a sleep mode that does not generate this message.

  • How can I delete all files stored on my computer quickly without dumping my base and paid for programs?

    I recently inherited a laptop Acer TravelMate 4220 age of 5 year from my mother, who bought his boss. The problem is that the computer is slow. I mean slow. I suspect that there are 1 million files that need to go bye-bye, and shows that I lack or use. Now I'm not what you call a computer expert; actually, I'm far from it. I tried to delete I know to be sure to delete the files, but there are still one bunch of others that I'm afraid to touch. I suspect that either the disk is too full of *, or somehow a virus or two got (I have a Norton Safe Search program installed MOM). Is it possible to safely and quickly clear the files in the computer without sending the programs installed in purgatory? More impotantly, a dummy like me he can do without damage? I thank will accept any I can get help and thanks in advance...

    The best thing for you to do is to completely reinstall Windows.  Really.

    Acer Travelmate laptops came with a hidden partition which will restore the computer to its state of factory costs, including software applications that were shipped with the computer.

    Because this computer was first held by the 'boss', however, it is possible that a COMPUTER service company everything on the hard drive replaced with a picture of the custom business that does not include the Acer erestore.  You'll just have to watch.  Also, of course, all applications that are added by the company will not be restored using the Acer application.

  • How can I delete a file from my backup/archiving?

    I am new to computers and I'm still trying to understand a lot of what happens, I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop with OS Vista Home Premium on a 64-bit platform. I downloaded a program to open an attachment, I received in an email, only to find out that I had to pay for it so I uninstalled when I did that he left behind a pop up that starts with the startup program, it tells me that there is a problem with the installation and to reorganize. I went to the boot file on all programs at the start of the menu found and deleted, but the next time I start the computer the pop showed once again. I went back to the file and there are still and removed the more I found it in other programs, including my C drive, I deleted all the and the next time I start the computer of pop showed once again. I went to the boot again file and this is once again so I removed it, while he was in the trash, I clkd on the properties and I found a box saying archives with a mark of chk in the box. Guess the file itself is the reproduction in the archives and the archives are backup is I? So, how in my backup file to find the file for the pop up and remove? If I can, I went through several books I have on computers but there is no explanation and I tried the computer but I can't find any specific information that will help. I sent several different security screens through the computer and it did not pop up (called cure pilot) (using Norton, Superantispyware, and Microsoft Security Essentials) so I don't think it is malware and my computer is not having more or less problems than what she normally. If I can't dig the file and delete any other ideas on what to do with it? I'll download CC Cleaner and try it. Thanks for any help.
