This is very easy to do, if you followed the advice in my book and created a new folder every time you created a new project. Then you just delete that folder and all of the project, media and back-up files go with it.
Otherwise, you'll have to manually locate the project's .prel file, the media files you gathered, and the sub-folders for Premiere Elements Auto-Save, Premiere Elements Preview Files, Encoded Files and Stop Motion Capture for that specific project and remove them.
Welcome to the forum.
The answer depends on how you set up the Project initially. I place everything into one root folder, which contains the PREL file, then sub-folders with Copies of my Source Footage, and my PrE Scratch Disks, including Render files, Media Cache, etc.. All that I have to do is Delete that Project's root folder, and everything goes away with it. If one has not used such a scheme, then they will need to navigate around the system, locating the various folders, with files inside, and Deleting them, one at a time. This ARTICLE goes into more detail on how I set up my PrE Projects.
Now, before you start Deleting files and folders, you need to ask yourself a few questions:
- Will I ever need to re-edit this Project again?
- Are the Assets used in this Project worth saving for later use?
If the answer is yes to # 1, then look into the Project Archiver, and when done, test that Project, to make sure that everything is needed to Open it later. I place my Archived Projects onto external HDD's, just in case.
If the answer is yes to # 2, then make sure to Copy any Assets to a safe place. I use a NAS for my Assets.
