    Question unavalaible to delete PDF file

    Hello community,



    I am newbie here and am glad that i found this portal on Google searching.

    Had anyone such issues on deleting PDF file but no reactions?

    I did what i found on Google search but no solutions.

    shift+del not helped. i turn off preview pane from explorer same not helped. i tried deleting from administrator account same. i give that file all permissions same. other pdf files deletion is ok except that one.

    any ideas please?

    You can try to use Command Prompt to delete files that cannot be deleted in Windows 10.
    You can press Windows + R keys on the keyboard, type cmd, and press Ctrl + Shift + Enter to run Windows Command Prompt as administrator.
    Then input the command line and hit Enter to force delete the file in Windows 10 with CMD.

    In Windows Explorer, turn off the Preview Pane. (Alt+P, or click"Preview Pane" in the Windows Explorer tool bar.) If that doesn't work, use SHIFT+DELETE to permanently delete the file.
