If you'd like to remove multiple files at one time, hold down the "Ctrl" key, then click on each file, one at a time till they're all highlighted..Once they're all highlighted, RIGHT click on one of them, choose "Delete", then choose "Yes/OK" when it's asks: "Are you sure?"
If you want to save them an move them elsewhere, RIGHT click on a blank area of the desktop, choose "New", select "Folder". Give the new folder a name, then "drag" each of the files from the desktop to the top of the folder, then release them. They will be dropped into the new folder..
Now drag the folder to your "My Documents" folder or any other location you want.
Hope this helps.
