    I have an empty Folder I am denied access to an would like to delete

    I am new to Windows 10. Use Win 7 at work and been a Mac User at home for the last 5 years.... Need a Windows machine.

    But I have an issue trying to delete a folder on my One Drive. It is actually a folder within a folder. No files. I am definitely logged on to the PC as a Admin. I checked that under users. I am the only user. when I drill down to the second folder within the first on my One Drive folder, I get the following message:

    It is just bugging me that I can't delete it. Trying to learn why..... so I can understand going forward.

    When I try to delete the Parent Folder that contains the one I have now permission, I get this error....
