VS .NET delete a solution

How do I delete solutions? But not the same directions in VS help.
I already followed the instruction for Removing project(s), I had only one.
The instructions for the solution were to highlight it in Solution Explorer,
choose Edit and delete. Delete is grayed out.

Background:
I searched for and read the instructions in VS for removing a project and
deleting a solution. Essentially, they are test projects/solutions that I
tried, and want to get rid of. I also noted that some instructions were to
to delete in windows explorer. But I have my project/solution name
(StarsM_Product ion) in at least two places.
I see it in VSWebCache, underneath my computer name, and the other
occurrence is in Inetpub, under wwwroot. My SQL database name is the same,
StarsM_Producti on.

I am (totally) unfamiliar as to where VS stores everything, for Web apps,
except inetpub, wwwroot is popular.

Oh, wow. Those Discussion Group choices that I had to choose from are not
in alphabetical order! YIK!

VS Stores solutions by default in your My Documents\Visua l Studio <maybe a
version number>\Project s directory tree. On my system, this is My
Documents\Visua l Studio 2005\Projects. Solutions are stored in the
directory with the solution name. To delete an entire solution, exit VS and
then delete the solution from the Projects directory.

Michael and Cor,

Thanks for the good responses.
I did use the wrong word on the project. I -deleted- it first, not removed
it. I should have used the correct term. But, you both answered the
question about the Solution itself. Also, I did see it under my documents.

Yes, Cor. I do have ASPNET projects and solutions:
....I have my project/solution name (StarsM_Product ion) in at least two places.
I see it in VSWebCache, underneath my computer name, and the other
occurrence is in Inetpub, under wwwroot...

Am I supposed to get rid of those?

Michael and Cor,

I forgot to tell you that my version is VS .NET 2003 (not 2005) in case it
makes a difference.

Michael,

It makes a difference, with 2003 it is more work than with 2005. To remove a
aspnet project use your computermanagem ent tool to remove it from IIS
(webroot) were it is mostly located.
