I accidentally created a folder in C:\Users\Name\ called "Videos". I am the administrator on my computer and I am set to have full access to this folder, but I can't delete it (it says I need permission to delete the folder). The folder is completely empty too, if that matters.

You might need to change the ownership and permissions (right click, properties, security advanced a.s.o)

I have full access to the folder in permissions. It says "Unable to display current owner", and when I try to set myself as owner, I get the error "Unable to set owner on Videos. Access Denied."
