Question: How do I delete an empty folder from Photos?

How do I delete an empty folder from Photos? When I moved from iPhoto to Photos I wound up with a folder called From MobileMe. I have deleted all the albums from it after verifying that they were included in my iPhoto Events folder albums. How do I get rid of the empty From MobileMe folder?

MacBook Pro, macOS Sierra (10.12.6), Photos version 2.0

That worked. It's finally gone. I couldn't find the ctrl-click option defined in any of the help documentation I looked at.

where is that album in the sidebar?


It it is an album you created you right click on the folder and delete it


If it is a system created folder then you can not delete it but if it is empty it should not show in the side bar

There is a folder called iPhoto Events that has multiple albums. Below it is the From MobileMe folder with 0 albums. Since it was created when I migrated from iPhotos, I guess I cannot delete it. But it is empty and still shows. Maybe if I restart my computer it will go away.

I shut down and restarted the computer and the From MobileMe folder is still there and still empty. Guess there's a glitch in Photos.

Did you ctrl-click the folder in the sidebar of Photos and then use the command "delete Folder"?

To reveal the sidebar, if it is not showing, enter the key combination ⌥⌘S (option_command-S)
