Copy, Move or Delete Files/Folders

Post by muffybean » Sun Oct 20, 2019 11:23 am

How do you copy or move files to another folder? Also, how do delete files? I erroneously downloaded the wrong Linux Mint 19.2 ISO and extracted it in the same folder (Downloads) and cannot delete them because delete option is greyed out. Cannot move them either.

Either you downloaded with root privileges so must delete with the same, or you double clicked the iso and now need to unmount it first.
