This is not a big deal, just something that is a bit irritating. A while back I accidentally dropped a folder onto the sidebar when I was attempting to drag it onto the desktop. Now I can't get it off the sidebar. It had some pictures in it, which I was able to move to the desktop, but the empty folder now sits there staring at me. Any suggestions as to how to get rid of it?

Grab hold of the folder with your mouse while at the same time holding down your command key, and drag the folder to the desktop and let it go. Poof! No more. ;)
