: rd /s
Rd is Remove Directory, of course, and the /s switch removes all the
subfolders, too. As usual in the Command Prompt window (which we old-timers
still call the "DOS window" even though we know it's not really DOS), type
the command followed by /? for what I call a mini-Help file that shows the
switches and parameters available with the command. Rd offers only a
couple: /s and /q.
It's a little surprising - to me, at least - that rd won't work if there are
files in the folder, but rd /s will.
