This document explains how to delete folders in the Files tab of Canvas.
In files, subfolders cannot be deleted from the list of folders on the left-hand pane of the files menu. Instead, they must be selected from the list of files on the right-hand pane. To delete a file, you must open the overarching course folder and locate the subfolder within it.
- Open the course folder
- Select size to reorder the results in the right-hand panel by size. This usually will make folders appear at the top of the list.
- Alternatively, you could search for the folder using the search bar.
- Right-click the folder on the right-hand panel, or select the three stacked dots icon
- Select Delete
