    Fix to delete the Email attachment file from iMac

    Recently I have saved an Email attachment and also saved some pages with it to my Mac desktop and now when I try to move the files to trash it says “Can’t be moved to the trash because it can’t be deleted”. Why is this? What should I do to fix it?

    Re: Fix to delete the Email attachment file from iMac

    This might be a issue with the process which is running behind your Mac or maybe some virus file which got attached along with it. Now to fix this issue you can try following the steps as given below,

    STEP 1: Open the terminal window which can be opened from the dock.

    STEP 2: Now type in the command Killall Finder

    STEP 3: Go to your desktop and delete the file.

    Now the files should be automatically moved to the trash folder without any problem because all the process which might be having the file locked will be destroyed. So there won’t be any further issues in deleting the file now.

    Friend,


    If you have the deleting issue with Mac system then you need to close the kill all finder file which is running behind your Mac system.


    =) So first need to go to the dock.


    =) Then open the terminal window from it.


    =) Now here you type in the command Kill all Finder.


    =) Once this is open on the desktop then you have to delete the file OK.


    Done.
