Re: Delete Admin

Hi there, @PM04
Do you by any chance mean that you added a member in a shared folder? If so and you have edit permissions or you are the owner of the shared folder in question, you can remove them by following the steps below:
  1. Sign in to
  2. Click Files.
  3. Locate the shared folder in question.
  4. Hover over the folder and click the Share button that appears on the right side of your screen.
  5. Click the drop-down menu next to the member you want to remove.
  6. Select Remove.
  7. Choose if you want to leave the member a copy of the shared folder by ticking or unticking the option which reads Let [user] keep a copy of this shared folder.
  8. Click Remove.
You can find this info here as well.
If I’ve misunderstood your concern, don’t hesitate to get back to me. grinning face with smiling eyes
