    Deletion of empty folders

    I operate Windows 7 and am wondering if there is anyway to delete empty folders. I find that if I move, remove (burn a song to a CD), or change the spelling of a song or artist in my music library that the empty folders still remain. Thanks!

    Are these folders that you have added to the library? Or are they subfolders? If they are folders that you have added to the library, then you need to remove them from the library. If they are subfolder, then delete them in the normal fashion: select them and hit the delete key. Or is there somthing about your question that I am not understanding?

    When I click on the Music tab in the start menu the music library opens. I can arrange by folders, albums, artists, etc.. If I click on arrange by Folders I get a list of folders showing the artists name. If I've misspelled the name or burned a CD and then removed the original file from the computer the folder remains in the artist list but is empty. I don't know if folder is empty until I click on it. I can delete the individual empty folders but can't find a way to delete all the empty folders at one time. I don't know why empty folders are listed.
