Issue removing user folder

Hi Expert,

Can I check what are some of the good way to remove the whole user folder? Other then just delete? Like command from cmd or PowerShell?

I am using local admin account to remove user folder but was getting "You need permission to perform this action" Check the security right and administrator have full control access to the folder though. User account was admin as well, tried remove it and still the same. Appreciate if any expert can advise me on.

Thanks!

On an elevated command prompt, use a command line tool especially made for this: delprof2

If you follow the built-in wizard, you need no tools at all and no registry editing, by the way.
Press "shift" and "Pause" keys together ->advanced system settings -> USER PROFILES ->settings
Choose the profile to delete.
