  1. Navigate to Public folders > Public folders.

  2. In the list view, select the public folder you want to delete, and then click Delete Delete icon.

  3. A warning box displays asking if you’re sure you want to delete the public folder. Click Yes to continue.

This example deletes the public folder Help Desk\Resolved. This command assumes that the Resolved public folder doesn’t have any subfolders.

Remove-PublicFolder -Identity "\Help Desk\Resolved"

This example tests the previous command without making any modifications.

Remove-PublicFolder -Identity "\HelpDesk\Resolved" -WhatIf

This example removes the public folder Marketing and all its subfolders because the command runs recursively.

Remove-PublicFolder -Identity "\Marketing" -Recurse:$True

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see Remove-PublicFolder.
