Fix: Path too long when deleting or editing a folder or file

When deleting or editing a folder or file situated in a folder structure you may encounter an error saying that the “Path too long”. This is due to the fact that the whole path to the folder or file is too long and Windows cannot process it. Yeah I know what you’re saying, why does Windows let you create a path that long in the first place.

Well, a quick fix to this is to rename all folders in the structure to a one letter folder. This way you will be able to remove the folders or files to a normal structured location and the Windows will not argue with the path being too long.

Example:

C:
– A
– A
– A
– A

etc. etc.
