I've updated my OS to Lion today. But now, I can't remove the folder "maven-2.2.0" from Finder Sidebar. This folder was deleted from my computer, and I can't right click on it.

How to do it?

Hold down ⌘ Command while dragging the item out.

I found this Lion change interesting; I don't necessarily like it, but I think it mirrors the way that you have to hold down ⌘ when rearranging toolbar items.

  • I have the same problem, but thank you so much Jtbandes, I can solve it now with hold down ⌘ and drag it out side to remove it from toolbar.
