    First a warning, when you delete them, they will not show up in the thread they were posted in any more, just the text "Attachment #XXXX". but if you really want to, drag the image to the bottom and click the X in the corner.

    With some experimenting I discovered sub folders can be added to the Home folder
    Right click anywhere in the "Folders" panel > Add Folder to Home
    You can only add folders to "Home" folder

    - I created one subfolder named "History"

    ... and dragged some "old" images from "Home" panel onto the "History" folder

    Click image for larger version

    With used images in the Home panel > Click the checkbox in one or more used images
    - I think I held Ctrl key (or was it Shift ?) while I selected multiple images in "Home Panel"
    - drag the "checked" images onto (say) the "History" folder

    When the pointer hits the sweet spot in the Home folder (or one of its sub-folders) the target folder has a very small red-dotted outline. Drop the dragged files onto the sweet-spot folder

    Ignore my file names. But I proved to myself it works.
    Now I have a tidy "Home" panel to look at

    Did I miss anything ?
