* choose the "Select/Move ranges" tool in the upper left, just right of 
the hand-with-pointing-finger tool. (it looks like a double arrow 
pointing left and right, with vertical lines at the end of the arrow points)

* in any track, click and drag right or left with that tool (the 
Select/Move ranges tool) to select a small range within the track, near 
the beginning or end, for example.

* right-click within the selected range and from the pop-up menu select 
"Extend range to end of region" or "Extend range to beginning of region."

* if you would like to include other tracks before deleting or moving 
the range, press SHIFT and click at the left of each track you wish to 
include, in the area beneath the name of the track.

* choose Edit-->Delete, or press the DELETE key on your keyboard.

What you are trying to work with is a range. A region in Ardour is 
something else.
