It seems to be simple, but how to remove the given privacy settings for files and folders? I have some double mentions which I would like to remove!

enter image description here

So how to achieve this, when the + / - control buttons are disabled?

In short, those buttons don't work and there's no easy way of adding, deleting, or modifying the contents of that list.

For the difficult way, have a look at this answer: Add apps to "Files and Folders" permissions?

  • Because Apple copied the interface elements from the "Full Disk Access" view, and forgot to remove them or hook them up to object methods. – benwiggy Apr 23 '20 at 11:36
