Default [Q] How To Remove a Folder/file...

I downloaded a music file (using U torrent for android) to the Internal Storage/download folder. I tried to delete it but it is grayed out and unable to do so. how can I delete that folder and it's contents? Thanks in advance.

Might the file still be "in use" by the uTorrent application? Try fully stopping the torrent file and deleting it from within the app if it has the option.

Ran into a similar problem. If the above doesn't work you will need to delete the file without booting into the OS.
1. Reboot and try to delete the folder again.
2. Custom recovery with file manager and delete from there.
3. Boot into bootloader and use adb to delete the file.
All of these options can be learned courtesy of Google.
