You need permission to perform this action

You require permission from the computer’s administrator to make changes to this folder.

First of all check whether the folder you want to delete is open or closed. If it is open it won't delete.

Now take the ownership of the folder, try below.

1. In your folder go to share Tab on the top and beside file. 

2. Go to Advanced security, go to change-> advanced-> click on Find Now

3. Select the User and click on OK button.

Now you should see your user inside the permission.
