Assigning permissions to a folder located in a mapped drive

I have a mapped drive to my computer, I have created a folder in the Mapped drive, but when I go to security tab to delete the default groups and create the groups or users that I want to grant permissions to , all I see there is the Edit button, I do not see Remove or Add.

I am not sure what to do to add groups/users and assign them permissions to the folder.

Any idea?

Thanks

You use the edit button to get to the add or remove.  Also since this is on a mapped drive it is probably inheriting permissions from its parent object.  If you wanted to specifically customize and remove certain users that are designated for inheritance you would have to break that inheritance so you can customize is.
