Deleting image files from media library

The media library contains the images you can use in your app: in text & image visualizations, on story slides, and as thumbnails for apps, sheets, and stories. 

You can delete images from the media library.

You can open the media library in several ways. Do one of the following:

  • In the app overview, click @ in the app details area and click 0 on the thumbnail.
  • If you are editing a sheet, double-click the text & image visualization to open the editing toolbar and click 0.
  • In storytelling view, click 0 in the story tools panel and drag Image onto the slide and then double-click inside the image placeholder.

The Media library dialog opens and now you can delete images.

Delete images using Qlik Sense Desktop

You can delete images from the default folder by removing the files from this location: <user>\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Content\Default.

The images in the In app folder are bundled images, saved in the qvf file together with the rest of the contents of the app. If a bundled image is no longer used in the app, the image will be deleted from the qvf file when saving the app.
