Delete it or keep it to send it to the program coder.

You can use "file core" in a terminal to know who and why, so you can
ask what to exactly do with it, maybe the coder wants it or tells you
how to extract the important info with gdb.

Select it with MB1 (left button for right handed), MB3 (right button),
select Delete. But that deletes the core file, cos the bomb icon is
the icon for core files. I would move it to a dir until you know if
you can delete it.

No idea, I do not have a LCD.
