Remove Empty Folders from FL Studio File Browser

Removing a folder in FL Studio was a tricky one for me to figure out in my early days, but once you know how to remove an empty folder in FL Studio, it’s really easy to do.

There’s two things that can happen:

  • You deleted a folder, and now it won’t go away in the FL Studio Browser
  • You’ve moved the folder to another location, but it stays in the FL Studio Browser!

In both of these cases, when you click the folder, it doesn’t open, and is annoying because it’s messing up your Browser organization!

The solution is very easy…

In FL Studio’s Settings, select File. Under “Browser extra search folders”, just double-click the folder text, remove all the text, and click away (or hit enter).

You must close the Settings window, and then the Browser updates, and you’re all organized again 🙂.
