    Extra folders in File Explorer - how to delete


    I one had I-Cloud Photos on installed my computer but have uninstalled months ago. The I-Cloud Photos folders remain on the left side of my File Explorer window, as shown on the attached graphic. The graphic also shows the error message I get whenever I click on an I-Cloud Photos folder. How can I delete these folder from my File Explorer display? The location shown does in fact exist on the PC.
