    Is there more information about this? I'm having the same issue, and it's driving me nuts(OCD alert)!

    Windows 10 Pro x64 Version 1607 (OS Build 14393.693)

    Mail and Calendar 17.7812.42257.0

    Microsoft People 10.1.3410.0

    Store 11610.1001.25.0

    Login to Windows using a 'Local Account', not a 'Microsoft Account'.

    Two accounts from an unrelated provider. One for e-mail using IMAP+SMPT, another for calendar/contacts using CalDav+CardDav (iCloud). I censored the second account name due to bad languageDoesn't delete :).

    And yet, when opening the Calendar. There is an entry for 'Microsoft Account Calendar', wich is unable to be managed.

    Things I've tried to fix this:

    - Removed and added accounts (Using both 'Calendar-->Manage Accounts' and 'Settings-->Accounts')

    - Removed and installed Mail/Calendar/People (Using PowerShell and Store)

    - Run Microsoft Troubleshooter for Windows Store

    - Run SFC /scannow

    - Run DISM /RestoreHealth

    - Switched to Microsoft Account, and back to local

    - A combination and multiplication of all the above!

    So far no fix is noticeable and the problem persist. Where does that 'Microsoft Account' entry comes from? And more important, how to remove it?!

    I would really appriciate if Microsoft gave some attention to this issue, and help us solve this.

    With kind regards,

    Hi, Rip, and welcome to TenForums.

    Can you provide a few more pieces of info?

    1) What was your installation path/methods to get to WIn10 Pro?

    2) Can you post a screenshot of or describe what indications you get from the Performance tab of Task Manager, especially right after the failure to delete?

    What happens if right click the file, hold Shift, and click Delete?

    If I encounter a file that refuses to delete, I usually use IObit Unlocker or Unlocker.

    Another method I use is restarting. If the file is running, the restart process should kill it.

    I got Windows 10 from Windows 7 in the task bar there was an icon saying "Get Windows 10"

    And here is a screenshot: https://i.imgur.com/2EookX9.png

    Hmmmm. Nothing strange on the screenshot other than your memory at 82% usage seeming kind of high....

    And no error messages when you try to delete, even after waiting a bit, just no response? Can you simply click on another file without getting the not responding message?

    Path to the file like Ztruker asked for might also be useful in narrowing it down - especially if it's a permissions problem and it's just not telling you so.

    The Disk part of the screenshot shows at least 5 lettered drives - what does your disk layout look like in Disk Management?

    It doesn't give any message just when I press shift+delete or delete only it doesn't do anything and iI tried to rename it then it says windows explorer not responding and the path is the desktop

    Next suggestion, check ownership and change ownership to you as user (sure you're have administrator in the user you are logged into?) of the Desktop or the file in question itself. Follow the tutorial, using Option 4, here: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/3...dows-10-a.html
