    I have tried to delete an empty folder from the library. There is nothing in it and the pictures are trashed from the desktop where they were. How do I delete the folder out of the library. I saw the instructions to do it and it won't do it.

    Anne, Welcome to the forum.
    There must be nothing in the folder to remove it from the HD. Open the folder in Finder and verify that there are no files of any type in this folder. If the folder is empty in as viewed in finder and the image count shows '0' in the Folder panel, you can right click on the folder in the LR folder panel and choose {remove} form the context menu.

    If this is not working for you, then a screen shot of the folder panel and another of the folder in a column view in Finder will help further assess the problem.
