Can't delete files

Hi, I tried to delete some screenshot files in my pictures, I tried to delete 5 files and ended up with about 70 I've never had this before I can't seem to delete them the more I try the more I get, all of the same files

Try highlighting them, and then hold down Shift and hit Delete

Hi, Try Unlocker if it does not work the first time try again and it should say something like / Do you want to remove the file on next boot,

I've had something similar in the past, where it copied files rather than deleting them. I think I noticed it more when using CTRL+Click than Shift+arrow but it's a bit hazy now. Can you do them one at a time using select and the 'Del' button rather than the mouse delete? Yeah I know it's laborious.

I tried to delete them one at a time but that didn't work, so I made a new folder and dragged all the files into it and deleted the folder sorted, thanks to all for trying to help
