I have a file that windows claims does not exist. I've tried to delete it but nothing seem to work. However, I found a option on google where as I can follow that instruction to delete the file as administrator...command prompt.
This will not work because the file is only present within the Paint desktop Recent File option.
Are you talking about the list that shows up in Photo-Paint when you click on File>Show Recent?
That list is stored in the Registry, and shows a history of files that Photo-Paint has worked with. It is not a "smart" list; Photo-Paint is not checking before displaying the list to see if those files actually exist.
In that screenshot, "Foo 2.png" no longer exists, because I deleted the file. However, it is still on the list.
Yes...but, how did you delete it...???

I deleted the file the same way that I would delete any other file, e.g., using Windows File Explorer.
Where are you seeing the file? Only in the Photo-Paint recent files list? Or are you seeing it in some folder in Windows?
A screenshot might help here.
If you are still interested, I listed the file on twitter website under the Corel account...
I have sent a message to Microsoft regarding the DOS under Windows 10 Pro.
I actually think it's rather interesting....
