Solved I need to DELETE a folder and all subfolders

Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit, 3 GHz / 1919 MB
I did a clean install of W7 on my note book. Of course I wound up with a folder name "windows.old" which contained my old files. I have moved the appropriate files to the active folders. What is the easiest method to delete the entire "windows.old" folder AND all of its sub-folders? This action will give me a lot more space.

✔ Best Answer
Highlight the folder by single-clicking it. Hold down SHIFT and press DELETE. When it prompts you about "Are you sure you want to permanently delete this folder?", answer yes. If there are hidden or system files that you're sure you don't need, it may prompt you when it reaches them each time; also answer yes to these...
