Start first with starting Command Prompt as Administrator. (in Accessories).

Next, for example, if I wanted to delete a folder named Folder on my desktop, I would type this command below.


RD /S /Q "C:UsersUserNameDesktopFolder"

To delete a user fold called Bert, I would type:

RD /S /Q "C:UsersBert"
