I can remove or open the files when they are listed in Google Drive. However, I am not sure that this is the file that I want to remove. I, therefore open it in document editor. Now, I see that I really want to remove it.

But, how do I do that?

If I go back to Google Drive then I am not sure that the "Untiteled document" is the same I just opened and wanted to delete. I therefore open it again and see that I want to delete it. But, I do not see the delete option in the document editor. I therefore close the editor and see "untitle document" in the Google Drive file list. But, I am not sure that this is the file that I want to delete. I therefore open it. In the file editor I see that this is the file that I want to delete. But, I see no option to delete it in the editor. I therefore go back to Google Drive.

How do I stop this hell?

Re-name the document. You should re-name it as "Delete 1" or something similar. That's your first problem. Afterwards you can find the document and delete it.

The current version of Google Document Editors (Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides) include a "Move to trash" menu option on File menu.
