Other folders appearing in sidebar


Whenever I open this folder in Atom by either dragging it to the icon, opening with an OS X service from Automator, with a terminal shortcut or from the Github app; the sidebar in Atom lists not only the folder but also my home folder and another folder (one level above the one I want to open)

My guess is that it has something to do with that blue icon which looks like tree?
Any suggestion on how I fix this, it slows down my fuzzy finder and is just cluttering overall.


Does this happens also if you run atom in safe mode?


Yep still the same:


Maybe right-click the superfluous ones and then “Remove Root Folder”?


Won’t that remove it from my Mac?


No, that just removes it from the listing in the sidebar.


This worked, thanks.
