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!

Hi,
that's so true, I tried deleting all my favorites in other favorites folder but it still stays there with no delete option.
I guess it's a bug that once that folder is created it can no longer be deleted.

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?
