  1. Press Shift+Restart to boot the PC into Safe Mode, then delete the folder.

  2. Hello Carin, welcome to the Microsoft community, my name is Luiz Cruz, an independent consultant and I would be happy to help you.

    I understand that you want to remove the old user’s folder, in which case I recommend that you try to follow the instructions below:

    Press Windows key + R and type: SystemPropertiesAdvanced and press Enter;
    Within the System Properties, click on “Settings” in the “User Profiles” field.
    Click on the profile you want to delete the data to select it, it will be in blue. Then click on “Delete”.
    After doing this, check if the old user’s folder has been deleted;
    If it is still there, try to delete the folder again;

    I hope I helped, see you soon!
