    1. To delete it a folder, I think all that you have to do is to delete all of the references to it. In other words, for each measure where you created a subfolder, go into Properties and clear the contents of the Display Folder box.

  1. I cannot find any clear way to remove an unwanted folder in the newest version of PBI, however I found that by selecting the measures contained within the existing folder, then deleting/clearing the ‘Display folder’ text box in the Properties pane, it will remove the folder from the Field pane. Seems odd there is no discrete way to remove the folder from the data model (watching tutorials it seems it was a feature at one point? A simple right click on the folder and ‘remove from data model’ was an option)
