I can't delete files in Workspace


I am in Colt Steele’s Web Developer Bootcamp through Udemy. I have a Workspace called webdevbootcamp.

There are subfolders called Client and Node Modules. I need to right click and delete them, but there’s no option to do so. I’ve already deleted and re-created the workspace. I also tried to download, edit the workspace, and upload it without the subfolders, but to no avail.

Is there a workaround? I was told in a Udemy forum that about the only other thing I could try is to work in a local environment, but that would defeat my ability to follow the instructor in Cloud 9 and complicate a lot of my work.



Hi, I’m in the same class and I’ve had the issue a while back. You can view the files you need by selecting “Show Hidden Files” or “Show Home in Favorites” options that are present inside the ‘gear’ icon dropdown menu which is situated beside the file root selection(“workspace dropdown file list”) that usually takes up the left side of the screen.
