Deleting a file with a space at the end (in Windows)

One of our users somehow managed to upload a file with a space at the end, which neither he, nor we, could delete. I googled it, and the answer is simple, but not obvious. Use a command prompt to delete the file using the short file name. A "dir /x" will reveal the short file name, then you can "del" the file using the short file name. Easy.
