While I know that you can hide this "Other favorites" folder from the favorites bar by not placing any bookmarks inside of it... I am wondering why I can't delete this folder from Favorites? It's annoying!

Eight months later and the issue is still present! I am struggling with this bug, lol. Knowing that this unnecessary folder is there, bothers me. As a result I still avoid using Edge.
I wonder if a fresh install of Win10 removes this folder?

I have the same issue, it persists even if you change to a brand new computer... I also would like to rename this folder and use the very same folder on my phone mobile edge instead of having an "other favorites" on PC and a "mobile favorites" for phone usage...

there is no hiding lol, Google Chrome has this folder too, that can't be deleted.
as a matter of fact, this problem is coming from Chromium.
a fresh install of Windows 10 won't change it.

You can't CTRL+A the ':file_folder: Other folders'. You also can not right-click on it to remove it either. Can you confirm that you have done this and this works? I am using Edge version 90.0.818.56 (Official build) (64-bit).

My two cents (as usual).
Favorites dichotomy is rather well placed in web browsers domain from its inception (nearly). It might be seen from psychological point of view, as well. It'd be thought about as a primary set of favorite hyperlinks (Favorites bar) and a secondary (auxiliary) set of also favorite and saved addresses (Other favorites). Those unloved ones are simply not present, a very benign solution.
Really, it's not a thorn in an ...! You can see it, or not. Accepting reality betrays higher harmony with life. :)
BTW. Other favorites aka Other bookmarks can be very useful when recognized. I've always used them during my adventures with web browsers. Its footprint is so small (see my screenshot) that I do not understand why the battle for its removing (hiding).
