I've accidentally added a folder to a Library ( not the one I intended to), how can I remove it ? Is there a Library management tool or something ?

You can remove folders you accidentally added to the library:

  1. Right-click the affected library
  2. Choose "Properties"
  3. Select the tab "Library"
  4. Select the folder you want to remove
  5. Click on "Remove"

The library tab is not available for me, for the folder. I'm using build 7100, maybe the build doesn't have that feature ? – Sathya Oct 3 '09 at 11:25
Oops - I overlooked the word "Affected library". Thank you, I was able to remove – Sathya Oct 3 '09 at 11:40
