Ubuntu – Right clicking a file, Can’t delete files/folders, no option to delete.


I have some files and folders that I can't delete. I click menu -> right click and the delete option is not available.

I can delete by using the terminal, but I'd prefer to do it from the GUI.

It's something to do with permissions, can someone help?

Best Answer

Make the current user owns everything inside the folder,itself as well as the parent folder.

chown $USER -R /desired.folder
