The rmdir CMD command is used to delete folders on the Windows operating system. But you must use the /s option to force delete the folder if it is not empty.

rmdir /s Folder-Name

Without /s, the folder must be empty. You can also add the /q option to force delete a folder without being prompted for confirmation.

rmdir /s /q Folder-Name

When you force delete a folder in CMD, the files are deleted immediately and are not moved into the Recycle Bin.
