    I can't seem to remove a folder that I added to the left side of the Desktop and Screensaver preferences pane. I accidentally clicked the wrong folder when I was adding it, and now want to remove it. I've tried dragging it out of the box it's in, hitting delete, ctrl/right clicking on it, none of which work. Does anyone know the secret?

    If you add another folder, it will replace the one you mistakenly chose.

    I'm sure there is an easier way, but, if you delete the folder with the name from your Screensaver, that is in your iPhoto library....then delete the files in your ~/Library/Preferences/ByHost/****.plist, the folder will be removed.
