    How to delete a folder in Outlook-style Live.com?

    I've used Hotmail.com as my primary email for well over 10 years. Recently I allowed an update to the new Outlook style format. Which I can live with.

    But I can't find any way to delete a folder. Nor is searching the internet any help; answers are all for the old format. I can revert to the old format, but I'd rather just move on.

    Anybody figure it out? Am I missing something? Thanks.

    I blundered into the answer. When I right-click on a subfolder, I get

    Save Link As ...
    Copy Link Location
    Clip to Onenote

    Inspect Element (Q)
    NoScript

    in a gray window with the tip of my arrow pointer on the upper left corner.
    If and only if I left-click without moving the pointer, the gray window closes and underneath is another small white window with

    For this folder
    New subfolder
    Rename
    Delete
    Mark all as read
    Empty folder

    Requires a bit of finesse to do this.

    So now I'm wondering if I've got something set wrong.

    Anyhow, thanks Bruce. "Problem" has a workaround.

    Arrow Try this

    Hi

    Try enabling the setting (i.e. making sure the box is ticked), allow websites to disable or replace context menus.

    See this Mozilla Support article, the setting you are looking for can be found under the Advanced Section.

    Hope this helps
