been to a wedding over the weekend, before going I created a desktop file, wedding, with route to both hotel & venue, hotel reservations, etc., now I am back I want to delete the file but I am getting the message: "You need permission to perform this action You require permission from 'pc name'\'my name' to make changes to this folder Wedding Date created 02/08/2012 7:57pm" as I am the only user of this pc I don't know what I have done to protect the file, no body else touches the pc, have right clicked to see if there is an option for open as administrator. how can I delete this file, all help and advice appreciated.

Great, glad it's sorted.

Apologies not necessary, I was a bit late realizing your question is in the Win 7 forum!
