Hello Everyone,

I'm trying to delete some folders with special characters, I used to do this, but I forgot,
The folders are locate here: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Menú Inicio\Programs.
The problem is here "Menú Inicio" so I tried "Men~1 Inicio" but is not working.
Example: RMDIR "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Menú Inicio\Programs"
Any suggestion will be appreciate, thanks.

NOTE: I'm not trying to delete the folder "Menú Inicio"
I'm trying to delete folders that are inside that folder.
