Lightroom Classic: Favorite folders cannot be unmarked

I have folders marked as favorite and I cannot unmark them. When I open the context menu, I can mark it as favorite (even though it already is) and then unmark it, but the star next to the folder icon stays.

 

Since I updated to the latest version, I can mark and unmark new folders at first without any problems, but later not anymore.

 

I think the only thing I did was filtering on the favorite folders only followed by trying to unmark a folder while the filter is active. Afterwards its not working for any folder anymore.

Could you please click folder navigator displayed on top of the filmstrip, select the required folder, and then select "Remove From Favorites?"

 

Thanks,
Sunil

I have the same problem.

Marking/Unmarking from the Filmstrip does not change the status of the folder.

To build on Sunil's reply: The user interface for unmarking folder and collections favorites can be very confusing. It sounds like you may have saved a favorite containing more than one folder, in which case it's even more confusing.

 

To remove such a favorite, click the source navigator menu at the top-left of the filmstrip:

Then click the favorite item you'd like to remove (in the screenshot above, that's "Folders: auto-imported, f2, f3"). 

 

Next, click the source menu again and click Remove From Favorites at the bottom of the menu.

 

If a folder appears in multiple favorites, you'll have to repeat this for each such favorite.
