    Default Windows 8 won't let me delete old user account files?

    Hi everyone,

    Windows 8 won't let me delete old user account files? hope you can help in this win 8 issue.

    One week ago i created another user account to test out another problem and now that problem has been resolved. now there is no need to keep it on my pc but windows 8 won't let me delete that user account files. windows 8 created a folder on my desktop with the old account's name and in it were folders such as music, pictures, videos etc. and these folders were empty. what weirder thing is that windows 8 won't let delete those folders.

    does anyone others also experienced the problem?

    hope you can fix it and many thanks in advance.

    If you are sure you do not need them, try deleting in Safe mode. You also might be able to move them to another location and delete from there.
