How do I remove the bookmarks for Pictures, Music, Videos, etc. from the Nautilus sidebar?

This is not a duplicate, as all the other variations of this question DO NOT work for version Ubuntu 18.04 (having tried them all) which is why I am asking this.


Edit the file:


and remove all the lines that correspond to the folders you want to remove from the sidebar. My end product looked like this:


replace 'username' with your username.

  • Doesn't work. Not sure its' actually doable looking at the GUI of Nautilus these bookmarks look heavily integrated... – Eugene K Jun 12 at 1:11
