How do I delete a shared folder or file. The delete in the Edit pull down remains grayed out.

Thanks.
Mike

Go to the device it's stored on?

Hey myaccino,

I understand what you're trying to do, but can't you just go to the device that the shared folder is on and delete it from there?

If I've misunderstood the situation, please let me know.

Point of clarification

The folders are listed on the Allshare program window. They are .WMV which sould work on my Samsung TV, however, I had to convert them to .MOV for them to work on the TV. I am ready to delete the program and start all over again.

WMV however has MANY versions.

Only some will work as you discovered. Also since you are on the PC, why not delete them in Windows Explorer? This AllShare program is not a Swiss Army Knife!

No it is not a Swiss Army Knife, but it is a Samsung program that is built to do what I want. I want to play my music, photos and video on my Samsung TV with music, photos and videos that are already on the PC through my network. All do play on the TV. I simply want to revise the folders which I earlier selected. The program, as I mentioned, does have a "delete" in the pulldown. But it will not activate from a gray screen when a folder is selected. The idea is to place on the shared list only files that will play on the TV. As an aside, The IE has not responded on my computer since I downloaded IE 9. Nothing happens, nothing. I have redownloaded a half a dozen times. I have spent many hours with help of all kind, but it remains a mystery to all. I refused to send the computer back to the manufacturer because I did not want to go through the rebuilding process even though all is data is backed up. So I just use Chrome.

Thanks.

There are too many reasons for that to grey out.

But the workaround is pretty well known so let's use it.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
