    Homegroup folder


    I created a folder 'Skafferiet' with File explorer in Home group.
    My intention was to share it with other users but I chose another way to go.
    So I decided to remove that folder - right click & delete - but the icon is still there and when I click on it a message tells me that it is not there.
    How can I get rid of that folder icon - it seems to be nailed to the Home group.
    Sorry about swedish language in the attachment but I guess it describes my problem ...
    Appreciate any help.

    Have you restarted/rebooted the computer since deleting? Could be Windows has to change/refresh its mind.

    try again to right click on folder > share with > stop sharing

    ​then delete folder again.

    OK - I did right click on folder > share with > stop sharing but there was no option to delete with right-click.
    After reboot the folder icon was gone ... I guess Windows was just joking with me
