  1. I cannot delete anything!!! No delete option on right click, no delete key, no ctrl-d


    Okay, I know I have been gone from Microsoft for a very long time. In fact the only reason I'm back is due to gaming. However I am back and why cannot I delete any files in Windows 11. Yes I am logged in as administrator although that is also another issue, because I cannot save certain files because it says I need Administrator Access, yet my profile says administrator. Anyway In File explorer when I click the delete key, nothing happens to a file I am trying to delete. The only remove option is remove from Quick access, and ctrl-d doesn't work either. What the heck. Oh, by the way I tried

    :)

    Explanations for deleted posts?

    Like I said, it makes no sense in letting users see deleted posts, even if they are their own. That's why they were deleted in the first place. If they get to see who specifically deleted it, it only serves one purpose. Lets them bitch.

    Had a Question..it was deleted --.--

    our policy is to delete only spam/inappropriate posts.

    the only person who can "hard delete" posts on the forums is me .. everybody else can just soft-delete the posts, the original author will see those posts in the threads list with a comment why it was deleted.

    to the poster it will look like this, without "manage"
