Many X window managers have a file management application similar to Microsoft's Windows Explorer. You should always state the name and version of your Linux distribution when asking a question, In this case the name of your Window Manager would also help us to answer your question.

Do you mean deleting in general---or something related to the CNC?

General:
Rt-click --> delete
Rt-click --> move to trash
Drag to the trash

In a terminal:
rm
