Does anyone know how to delete a folder in your recipe box. I found I can add a sub folder to main dish folder and no longer need my Beef and Chicken folders. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

If your go to your recipe box, you should have a list of ALL your recipes. there should be an arrow next to its picture thumbnail with OPTIONS. scroll over that and delete should be at the bottom. Hope this works. HB

click to go into your recipe box-- then on the left you will see where it says my folders- click ther- then just highlight(hover) over the one you want to deleat - it will show options- click and follow directions- delete:-)

Another option, if I understand you correctly, is to simply reorganize the folder by moving it. Hover like NAnny129 says, and then select move. This allows you to move whole folders in and out of other folders without having to move all the individual recipes.

OK, if I understand you ladies correctly, went into my recipe box, on the left is a list of my recipes which are filed under My Folders. Under My Folders lists categorized folders such as Appetizers, Breads and so on. When I hover over those that are already pre added or hover over ones I have added (like Chicken) there is no option to move or delete or anything for that matter. (if you click on a recipe you get those options under the "options" button) That I understand. But, what I am wanting to do is remove a specific folder that I added to my recipe box. Hmmm, what your comments say make sense, there is just no window that pops up for me to move or delete. when i hover over the folder name it just highlights it with nothing other then a little title box showing what the folder name is. What am I doing wrong?

I see you figured it out after preparing this post. But this will allow you to know how to replicate what you just did to make it work. . . . From your description, I think you’re missing a key step to making it work. Here Is an excerpt from what you said “Under My Folders lists categorized folders such as Appetizers, Breads and so on. When I hover over those that are already pre added . . .”. You need to left click on “My Folders” first with your mouse, and then all of your folders will appear to the right. Hoover your mouse pointer over any of these folders, and an ‘Option’ button w/ orange down arrow should appear. That is where the delete and other options are. It’s possible you’re experiencing a technical glitch but first make sure you give this a try correctly before troubleshooting further.
