Information note

For Qlik Sense: You need to use the Qlik Management Console to delete images from the default folder, or other folders that were created from the Qlik Management Console.

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.
