Default Real basic newbie question

Hello all,
I have searched this forum and maybe I'm not searching the right terms, but, here it is:

Say you have a 15 minute session with 4 songs that used 8 tracks, how do you take "1 song" out and make it it's own session, or can I delete the length of the session before and after, then save as? If so, HOW DO you delete 4 minutes of all 8 tracks to "shorten the session"? , the actual length and not just create silence?

In a nutshell, I'm looking for the easiest way to indepently mix 4 songs in a 15 minute session.

Any help is sincerely appreciated..

I don't track this way anymore (one session for the entire tracking session, these days I like to do one session per song) but this is the way I used to do it:

Select "Save Session As" and name it according to the song you would like to mix.

Delete all unwanted regions and tracks and move the regions for the required song back to the session start (select the "all" group to make it easier to grab all the regions)

Repeat this process for all the songs.

I know what you mean; like removing the bars between the locators in Reason.

Couldn't find a way to do it in Cubase when I was using that, and haven't needed to use it in ProTools yet.

Would be interesting to see if there's a way that doesn't involve dragging all your regions forwards.
