Problem Solution:

In this program, we will remove the specified file using os.Remove() function and print an appropriate message on the console screen.

Program/Source Code:

The source code to remove a specified file is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully.

// Golang program to delete a specified file

package main

import "os"
import "fmt"

func main() {
	err := os.Remove("Demo.txt")

	if err != nil {
		fmt.Println("File does not exist")
	} else {

		fmt.Println("File deleted successfully")


File deleted successfully


In the above program, we declare the package main. The main package is used to tell the Go language compiler that the package must be compiled and produced the executable file. Here, we imported the fmt, os packages then we can use a function related to the fmt and os package.

In the main() function, we removed the "Demo.txt" file using os.Remove() function and printed the "File deleted successfully" message on the console screen.
