Cannot figure out how to remove a junction point created using Link Shell Extension

Anyone know how to do this? I know you can safely delete a symlink, but this is a directory junction. I tried deleting it through explorer, but it killed the target directory (I was able to restore the directory from the recycle bin). It seems there is not a way to easily do this...I can't imagine why this functionality was not added in. I am using Windows 10. Can someone please help?

Use CMD.exe with the RD command.

I just tested it on a Symlink that I created with MKLink.exe /D and files in actual folder safe

Wikipedia lists some command-line commands that should remove junction points:

There's also a utility called Juntion Link Magic that scans for Junction points and allows you to create and remove them:
