When you hit tab did it correctly spell out the file your trying to remove? If so it shouldnt matter how long the file name is, it should delete it.

I figured it out, in case anyone else has this problem. Open CMD, go to the dir of the file, type erase *(extension, example .mp3). It'll will delete all of the files of that type (Ex. all mp3 files) so move the files you don't want deleted beforehand. Thanks for all of your help and time!

Edit:

Ex.

erase *.png
