I wanted to delete a folder in Google Drive and found myself figuring out how: no option to delete. See screen shot:

The support site clearly states that it is possible, with the trash bin: support site google drive. Drag & Drop works, but......

Has anybody got a clue?

To delete folders click the My Drive option which lists all the folders in your drive and then u can select whatever folder you want to delete and then right click and select remove or click the trash can icon.

Folders can't be deleted from the sidebar. Go to the parent folder. In the main area of the window that lists of contents of the folder, check the checkbox next to the folder you want to delete, and then click the trash can button near the top.
