Request/complaint: let us remove "Other favorites" folder from the favorites bar

Regular Contributor

Please give us the option to hide/remove the "Other favorites" folder from the favorites bar! It takes up valuable space that could be used for more favorites in the favorites bar, and also, it's just weird and bad to make that folders presence mandatory in the favorites bar. Do a quick web search and there are many, many people asking how to hide/remove the "Other favorites" folder from the favorites bar. Firefox does give users the option to hide/remove it but Chrome doesn't.

 

I know it might seem silly but this is definitely one of those little 'paper cuts' that people notice. Some annoyed Chrome users could switch to Edge over this (assuming the Edge team does give us the option to hide/remove it)

Thank you for sharing this.
I advise you to send this as feedback to the Microsoft Edge team.

@Bdsrev And here's what the option looks like in Firefox (you have to have at least one bookmark in the Other Bookmarks folder for it to be present in the first place though)
