    How to delete VHD

    Hey everyone, this is my first post, but I want to get straight to the point.

    I created a VHD a few years back and it has grown in file size. However, these files are now useless to me and I would like to delete them.
    I unmounted the driver and when i try to delete it from my file explorer, it says the file is in use(see screenshot)

    Is there any way to delete this?

    My pc specs
    Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-5200U CPU @ 2.20GHz 2.19 GHz
    Installed RAM 8.00 GB (7.88 GB usable)
    Graphics Card Intel HD 5500

    VHD is a like of every single file. but different. equivalent in iso and img files:

    Open Explorer (explorer.exe)
    Right-click the VHD file
    Choose Eject
    Locate the VHD file
    Right-click the file
    Choose delete or,
    Click the file
    press delete or shift+delete
