Access denied when try to delete folder in Modern Sharepoint site’s doclib

Recently I faced with the following problem: when you create OTB Modern Team or Communication site (see How to create modern Team or Communication site in Sharepoint) you can create sub folders in document libraries, e.g. in Style library:


(BTW with modern experience currently it is possible to create sub folders of only first level. If you want to create sub folders of deeper levels you have to switch to classic experience and create sub folder from there)

However if you will try to delete this folder you will get the following error:

Sorry, something went wrong
The server has encountered the following error(s):
Access denied. You do not have permission to perform this action or access this resource.


In order to avoid this error you need to enable customizations of pages and scripts on the site. You may do it with the following PowerShell command:

Connect-SPOService -Url https://{tenant}
Set-SPOSite {url} -DenyAddAndCustomizePages 0

After that you will be able to delete sub folders in Style library doclib on the modern site.
