    What do these files:

    Makefile.win
    ProjectName.o
    ProjectName.layout

    If I create a project computer creates those files? Is some of them important, so it isn't a good idea to delete them?

    You'd have to recompile at best, or your project will be messed up and you'd have to start over at worst. If I were you, it's a bad idea to delete those:
    - Makefile.win helps build the executable
    - ProjectName.o is an object file for use by the linker
    - ProjectName.layout is probably something the IDE depends on to keep track of the project.

    Unless you wanted to scrap your whole project.
