    You need to edit this file: ~/.gtk-bookmarks

    Alt + F2
    Then enter in:
    Code:
    gedit ~/.gtk-bookmarks
    There you may delete the items you do not wish to see in your Places menu.
    Work smart, not hard.

    Check to see if your ~/.gtk-bookmarks file still contains the places you deleted before.
    If they come back, you could try and make the ~/.gtk-bookmarks file read-only. This may solve it for you.

    correction: this only works until rebooted. (I almost never shut it down)


    The following SIMPLE method worked for me.

    Open places - computer. In the left panel you will find icons for the things that you want to eliminate from the list. Right-click and select "remove"

    They are removed from the left panel AND from the list when you click "Places"

    Should you ever want to return them, (or add other folders to the list) open the folder that contains the icon - left-click-hold and drag it to the left panel.

    It's been ~2 years. Is there really no answer to this yet?

    yes there is (at least) one.
    you can do it by selecting "Edit bookmarks" from the "Bookmarks" menu of any nautilus window.

    1) Open File Manager

    a) Click Places
    b) Click on Home Folder

    2) Notice the Places on the left side column
    3) The bookmarks are at the bottom
    4) Right Click and Remove the item - Easy
