# Is it possible to delete folders in Blender's file view?

It's possible with files (right-click, x key, click "Delete" to confirm), but I haven't gotten it to work with directories yet. In case it changes anything, I'm using Blender 2.67b on Debian 7.0.

• Could somebody please add the tags 'directory' (or 'folder') and 'delete'? (I don't have enough rep). – Forest Katsch Jun 19 '13 at 15:24
• no need for those tags. – A Wild RolandiXor Jun 19 '13 at 15:27
• All right then. – Forest Katsch Jun 19 '13 at 15:28

It is not possible to to delete directories in Blender's file browser, unfortunately.

• Because it's not implemented yet... ? :) – Forest Katsch Jun 19 '13 at 15:31
• @ForestKa i wouldn't assume that, probably because it might do more harm than good or security reasons etc. – iKlsR Jun 19 '13 at 15:33
• Yes, that's true. I can't think of any security reasons (other than deleting important folders). Maybe when you're naming a new folder and hit "Escape" it should cancel instead of creating a folder named "New Folder". – Forest Katsch Jun 19 '13 at 15:35
