To the right of the topic are 3 little dots.

Click on them to bring up a menu - including "Delete"

You can only remove a topic that you started, I presume that is what you are asking about?

The Windows version doesn't come into it  as it is facebook's system you use to amend messages.

Judging from your reply above I believe that your post was in a GROUP setting and that is different from a post on your own timeline. Just did some checking and confirmed that Deleting messages in a Group is Admin only. and even then has some problems as it could remain in the timeline of anyone in the Group who has opened the topic.
