    I can't delete files from my Downloads folder. Selecting, highlighting just closes the folder. What's the secret?

    How do you exactly delete items from the Downloads folder?
    CMD+BackSpace, right-click > Move to Trash or drag & drop?

    Have you checked Finder > select the file >> GET INFO >>> Sharing & Permissions yet?

    Either control click the file...move to trash option

    or

    Customise top toolbar (under view menu) , and add Delete

    Highlight, click on delete.

    Use option  key to highlight multiple files, or click shift click to highlight consecutive files.

    I always highlight the file and then press COMMAND DELETE. Works every time.
