Delete Folder From Picture Library?

Posted on 2011-04-28

I am testing out a new install of Sharepoint 2010 and seem to be having trouble finding a place that will let me delete a folder from a Picture Library. I can delete pictures by selecting the check box next to them and choosing delete. But this does not work for folders as there is no checkbox. Hopefully I am missing something here. Any ideas?

    You can select
    Actions , Open in Explorer and that will give you an explorer window to delete the folder as in a file system

    Best of luck.

    Hi George,

    When trying that an error appears "Your client does not support opening this list with Windows Explorer".
    The machine is using IE9 in Windows Server 2008 x64 if that helps.

    You can use IE 8 or 9 (32 bit ) from any other machine. (32 or 64 bit)

    It is normally available on each machine both versions 32 and 64.

    Thanks George, using another machine was the trick.
