How to delete network folder with thumbs.db file on Windows10

Configurare noua (How To)


On Windows 10, thumbs.db are hidden files that are created when using thumbnail previews for folders in File Explorer.

Although these files are harmless, sometimes they can cause problems. For example, if you moved content from a Windows 10 device to a network shared, and then you want to delete a folder, and you end up with a “The action can’t be completed because the file is open in Windows Explorer” message referring to the file that will prevent you from removing the folder.

Click the Delete  button from the “View” tab.

Once you complete the steps, the thumbs.db file should delete without problems. However, if the steps don’t work, then you can switch to another view, and then choose the Details views again.
