In the default file manager for Debian, how do I remove the folders bookmarked on the left panel? I have no use for most of the folders there.


Just in case someone finds this thread, I managed to do it following the guidelines listed here: Ask Ubuntu - removing bookmarks from nautilus sidebar

Modifying this file let me remove some useless folders (tested on Gnome 3)

<your favorite text editor> ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs

  • @pierreB I see - sorry. Should this be closed as duplicate then?

  • I wouldn't recommend editing that file, since other applications rely on it Feb 24 '19 at 4:48
