    WLAN Traces folder appeared on the desktop

    Hi everyone,

    One folder named 'WLAN Traces' suddenly appeared on my Windows 10 desktop and wondering how I can get it rid off it, tried to delete it but it shows that I require permission.

    Thank you,

    Check out this discussion at Microsoft: Wlan trace files .ETL. As for the traces file, you could try a tool like Unlocker to see it it will remove it for you. If that fails, you may need to boot to Windows 10 install media or a rescue disk (like Kyhi's) and then delete the file(s) from the command line.
