Sorry if I posted too early. I have found that if I drag a folder to the recycle folder it effectively deletes it. However I'm curious why standard delete button or menu delete item is not provided?

I inadvertently removed files from winspc public_html and need to purge the site and reload my website to be transferred to hosting service. Can you give advice as to what steps I need to perform to clear the site and then reload the website I created in Micrsoft Fron Page. Site and uploads worked well for 5 years and only in the last few days through erros of my own am I having problems. I am a novice user.

There is Delete button on the toolbar, in the Files menu, in the context menu, everywhere.

Sorry, but that's a way too broad question. And probably not about WinSCP anyway.
