    Windows Vista Ultimate OS

    I have 2 User folders BChat and PUBLIC
    In Windows Explorer the Public Folders appear in 2 places

    Desktop\Public - right click - no delete option
    and
    D:\Users\Public - right click - has delete option

    How do I delete the PUBLIC folder, or do I have to delete
    the Public User somewhere?

    Thanks -

    AFAIK, Public doesn't have an User account, it's just a folder to share
    files among users on the Vista computer.
    I don't know if you can delete it..

    Dave,

    I can delete the Users\Public one, not the Desktop\Public one.
    I don't know if they come back automatically or not.
    I wanted to get some more info before I went too far.
    Thanks for the reply.

    You are not able to. It is a system folder
