iMovie confusion

Hi all, I'm a new Mac user and recently started using iMovie. It seems to be simple enough, I had exported two 4 minutes clips, cut them each to one-minute and was able the junk the portion of each video in Events that I wasn't using.

I now no longer can do it, either I don't remember how (which I can't understand) or I changed something to make it not visible.

Can anyone help? I've been trying tons of different things for a week.

I though I just dragged it to trash, it asked if I wanted to keep the part of the file in use, I can't even get to that anymore.

Go to your hard drive and go to Movie and open it and look for your Event folder and see your clips. Then delete from there. See if that works.
It is always best to have a external drive for you video files as the take up a lot of space and can slow you computer down and the odd occasion play silly games with your work.

This right here is what used to pop up when I deleted a video in events, this is the option I still want to use. For some reason now, this option doesn't come up, iMovie just tells me that my clip is being used.

I want this option, can anyone else get it to pop up?
