    Re: deleting bookmarks

    Yes, good question.

    On the left hand side of PCManFM, there is a pane with a choice of Places and Directory Tree

    Select Places

    Left click on the bookmark you wish to delete and you can choose Rename or Remove.

    However, it looks like some bookmarks are fixed such as User and Trash Can so I would also be interested in further advice?

    Kind regards

    I just created and then deleted the bookmark in the manner that tea for one suggested. It works in PCManFM 1.1.2. I suspect however that you are after something else.

    Good morning

    I mixed up left and right click yesterday.

    The correct instruction in PCManFM 1.1.0 is:-

    Right click on the bookmark you wish to delete and you can choose Rename or Remove

    Apologies for the error

    Re: deleting bookmarks

    Yes, right click>remove, but this will ONLY work for bookmarks under the line in the left column. The ones above the line are not bookmarks exactly, but partitions, trash and a symlink to the apps directory.
