How can I delete everything and start from scratch?

I want to delete EVERYTHING and restart from scratch. I just paid almost $50 for a (Removed-Language) program that I am too stupid to figure out...I've created three separate "files" I guess and I need to just delete them all and start over. Please help me. Thanks.

    You are not too stupid to figure it out. Quicken is a deceptively complicated program. Not by design, but because it takes on a very complex financial industry and tries to make it easier. It takes a rather long time to gain a solid understanding using Quicken. The best suggestion is to have a test file to use as a sandbox to gain understanding and a work file to use after you see the expected results from the sandbox file. It's double work, but after a while, you will rely on this less and less.
    To answer your initial question, simply go to File>File New and that will get you a "clean slate". Learn to make frequent backups so that if you do create an issue, you can simply restore back to before the error.
