This is no big deal, but I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to delete a folder name(no contents,so no actual folder there)on the left side of File manager?It's just bugging me.
Thax,
Jerry

Thanks Infopro,
It's down the row of folders on the left, in my cPanel there are other names without folders that look just like it, such as:.trash, access-logs,bin,logs,and perl, which were all there before.
I inadvertently uploaded this folder there,deleted its contents and now want to get rid of it.
When you click on it the right side says "no records found".
I'm just trying to do some housecleaning.
Jerry:)

At the top of the list where it says (home/username) click it one time. If it collapses the tree, click it again to expand. You are in the root of your account here. While there look to the right to find your folder. you'll see the other .directories there too. Click once on the one you want to kill and then the red X.

In other words, don't click the folder you want to delete from the left menu, choose a directory above it. When you do that folder will display on the right and then can be clicked.

(I just tested this to be sure it is working)
