How to delete just the edges

Hi. I hope I am not posting this in the wrong part of the forum.

If so, sorry about that.

I am working on a 3d model, and when I subdivide a plane, it gives me four sections. How do I delete the edges of two of the sections so that I can have two sections instead of four?

If you want to get rid of an edge without affecting the faces that share that edge click on the edge in edge select mode, press X and then choose "Dissolve" from the delete menu. You can do the same thing with vertices if you want to remove a vertex from the middle of an edge without deleting the edge itself.

Thank you. That's what I wanted to know.
