I know where iTunes delete duplicates is - BUT HOW DO IT?

I know where iTunes delete duplicates is - BUT HOW DO IT?
No one ever goes on to TELL you what to DO NEXT. I am not talking about going through 5,000 songs and deleting each duplicate the iTunes program identified. Someone else said Highlight and hit delete GREAT BUT HOW DO I DO THAT? I have been trying for a search for months now and can't figure it out. And NO I do not want to download any "free" software to do it. It is NOT FREE only the first 5 songs - no thank you.
I'd sure like an answer to this. I have so many songs due to duplicates the program is locking up.

So which step is eluding you?

In reply to: I know where iTunes delete duplicates is - BUT HOW DO IT?

"Highlight" = I click once on the title.
"Delete" = I tap the delete button on my keyboard.

"Highlight" = I click once on the title.
This is what I don't understand HOW do I highlight each song that I want to delete? They are already highlighted very lightly "I think" but not sure. So then do I have to go down the entire list of 5,000 songs and delete the highlighted ones? I can't just do a key to delete them all?

I am wanting to delete all the duplicate files at the same time.
Not having to do each one manually.

Thank you, Antoinette
