If I may ask:

Does it offer any details to you such as size and security settings when you look at its properties?

Are you able to look at its properties?

How long has this been going on?

Type CMD in the search box. Right click Run as Administrator and follow this youtube. Make sure you are deleting the correct directory. I would not use the /q option of rmdir but use the /s option. /q is quiet mode with no confirmation to delete. /s will remove all subdirectories.

The folder's name might be too long.

 

 

Press the Windows key + X to open the Power Users Tasks Menu.

 

Select Command Prompt (Admin).

 

Copy/paste: cd %userprofile%\desktop

 

Press Enter.

 

Copy/paste: dir /x

 

Press Enter.

 

Locate your folder.

 

Once you've located the folder, locate the Short Name. It's the shorter version of the folder's name. It may include a "~1" at the end. Copy it (right-click the short name > select > highlight it > press Enter to copy)

 

Type ren <Short Name> "new name" (with quotes)

 

Press Enter.

 

The folder on your desktop should now have a new name.

 

Type dir /x

 

Press Enter.

 

You should notice the new name and the short name with "~1" at the end.

 

Copy it (right-click the short name > select > highlight it > press Enter to copy)

 

Type rd/s <paste short name with "~1" at the end>

 

Press Enter

 

Type Y.

 

Press Enter.

 

Hopefully, you're done!
