    how do I remove favourites folder from user folder

    I don't mean in the navigation pane or menus, I mean the folder itself in c:\users\username which refuses to stay deleted.

    Is there a way to get rid of it FOREVER?

    You cannot, because it is tied to the OS and the Default profile. If there is nothing in there, just leave it there. It is not taking up much room, even if there are favorites stored in it. Of all of the links I have in mine. It only takes up 74.5 KB. That is a little more than old school computers came with installed on the Motherboard.
