# Remove favorites from sidebar

I followed the tutorial lifehacker gave about dual-booting win 7 and ubuntu but when I come to ubuntu I can't remove my inner documents and music libraries in favour of my common libraries store in another partition. How can I remove them from sidebar? should I ask for extra permissions or type my password anywhere? thanks

edit: I have no problem accessing the storage or accessing my files. The thing i want is to remove the default libraries from the sidebar I see then I open any folder and to add instead of them my folders (located on storage partition)

Please make your question clearer - do you have problems accessing a Storage partition or something? –  Wilf Feb 22 '14 at 9:42

You have to edit the file ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs.

To find it, open your Home folder, press Ctrl+H in order to see hidden files, navigate to .config and open the user-dirs.dirs file.

You'll see something like

    XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/Desktop" XDG_DOWNLOAD_DIR="$HOME/Downloads"
XDG_TEMPLATES_DIR="$HOME/Templates" XDG_PUBLICSHARE_DIR="$HOME/Public"
XDG_DOCUMENTS_DIR="$HOME/Documents" XDG_MUSIC_DIR="$HOME/Music"
XDG_PICTURES_DIR="$HOME/Pictures" XDG_VIDEOS_DIR="$HOME/Videos"


Just replace \$HOME/yyy with \path\to\the\folder\you\want

Note that:

1. in order for the changes to take effect, you have to log out and log back in.
2. I wasn't able to add or remove entries, just change them.
