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?

@calebme 

 

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.

please use the feedback button on Edge desktop and mobile to send this request as feedback to Edge developers, if they see enough people are requesting the same thing, they will give it higher priority and fix it quicker.

@calebme type: "edge://favorites" in URL. Click on other favorites. ctrl+a to select all of them then delete. That will automatically remove the folder. 

@eliasabiadal 

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).
