Hello!  I see how to use Configuration -> Take Configuration Snapshot to create a new configuration snapshot.  I also see how to use Configuration -> Configuration Snapshots to see my list of configurations and activate one.  What I haven't been able to find is how to delete a Configuration Snapshot.
Could anyone guide me though how to delete a Configuration Snapshot that I don't need anymore?
Thanks!
Jon

I rather suspect that you're not supposed to delete them. But if you feel you must, on windows they are at C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\PrusaSlicer\snapshots\, only the little pixies know where on a Mac. The Alpha and Beta's of 2.3.0 used -

...\PrusaSlicer-beta\.. and ..\PrusaSlicer-alpha\..

On a Mac, the path is /Users/<<username>>/Library/Application Support/PrusaSlicer/snapshots

Thanks @towlerg and @egar!  I'm on a Windows machine and see that directory.  They have strange, coded names, but I see I can use the search function to find out which is which (the name I give it in PrusaSlicer seems to be in the snapshot.ini file).  I understand that there may be some that they don't want you to delete, but my question is for when I create a Configuration Snapshot and then later decide I had an error, or it needs to change, or I don't need something anymore.  
Thanks again!
Jon

Nope, you should just be able to delete the folder with the old snapshot.  The format of the names of the folders is timestamp (YYYYMMDDThhmmssZ) where Y=year, M=month, D=day, h=hour, m=minute, s=second.  This is in UTC/GMT.
