I had a folder in my Files on Canvas that was not named well...it didn't really tell students what it contained. I made a new folder with a better name, but I can't see how to delete the old one. Can you help me?
Can't delete folder
Is the old folder empty?
If Canvas behaves like Windows machines, you probably have to delete all the files inside the folder first, and then it should let you delete it. (famous last words).
In Canvas, you CAN delete a filled folder, so be sure to move things first if you need to.
That said, you can also RENAME a folder which might be easier! Just be sure you start at the ROOT folder (see image) and then look for the THREE VERTICAL DOTS to right of folder you want to delete or rename.
By the way: I noticed that on iOS tablet using CHROME browser, I needed to tap the EYE to make the THREE DOTS appear. This is a glitch that does not occur when using desktop version of Chrome.
Hope this helps!
