PostSubject: Question about uninstalling   Thu May 11, 2017 6:10 pm

I screwed up the first time I tried to install and ended needing to delete everything to start over. The problem is Windows won't let me delete some of it, saying the file name and path is too long. I tried the fixes explained here https://www.howtogeek.com/283877/how-to-delete-files-windows-claims-are-too-long/ and here https://www.howtogeek.com/266621/how-to-make-windows-10-accept-file-paths-over-260-characters/ but they didn't work. Any other ideas on how to go about getting rid of my old installation so I can try again?

Hello!

Does this help?



EDIT : 

1.You can press CTR+A to select all files if all are to long
2.You can then right click them and press rename and rename them to something like "1" or "tobedeleted"

I ended up just going through and renaming everything in the string of folders/files to one digit number, and then I was able to delete it. Thanks.
