Cant delete a folder in workspace. erroniously created index.html folder for index.html code. cant seem to delete folder

In the Front End within the class workspace I need to delete a folder I mistakenly made. Right click and delete are not working also key delete not working. I am sure I am just missing something in the protocal of things. Cant delete index.html file inside either (which I have saved in Note+). Just trying to get things back to class spec. to continue class.

I just tried to replicate your issue and Workspaces wouldn't allow me to create a folder named index.html or a file named index.html because it already exists. I would save everything, exit out of everything (including the browser) and try to open the workspace back up and try again.

You could also try dragging your index.html file outside of the folder and then try to delete the folder.

Good luck!

Thanks will do
