How can I delete images that appear in the "Files and Images" space?
When I click the plus (+) while editing a page the first item listed is Files and images. In there are old images I have uploaded that I no longer want.
How do I delete them?
It sounds like you would like to delete the attachments from a page you are editing - if you are referring to the dialog when choosing files and images "Attached to this page":
Go back to the view mode for the page and click the three dots on the top right:
Choose Attachments and you can delete them from the next screen, on the far right:
I hope that is the information you are looking for. If not, please let me know more about where you are seeing the unwanted images.
I am not sure whether you are using Confluence Cloud or Server, so here are the docs for both - you have to be a Space Administrator to purge items from the trash:
Cloud - Purge deleted pages
Here are screen shots that could help:
Glad to help, Doug,
Please see: Navigating to Space Tools.
If you are a space admin the button is below the left page tree on the space where the deleted attachment was:
If you are not a space admin, you will need someone who is to purge the trash or add you as a space administrator under Space Tools>Permissions.
One outside possibility is if you are using a very old version of Confluence, or a custom theme, the space settings could be on a Browse menu on the space, in the case of older Confluence versions and in the case of a custom theme the Space Tools could be anywhere.
