I accidently listed file folders twice in my library. How do you remove one so only one remains?

    Assuming that you’re just deleting unnecessary copies, you can hold down the left CTRL button on your keyboard, select the folders which you want to get rid off with your mouse while still holding down CTRL, and after you’re done selecting you can go ahead and delete them. Right click on any of these folders, and click on “delete”.
