Select/Copy library list

I've been working with several Calibre libraries, including some that I've been using for testing some code. Some of those libraries, like some of the test libraries, don't exist any more. But they still show up in the drop-down list for selecting a library or copying a book to a library.

I did find a file in the calibre folder in the Windows Appdata folder that contained a list of libraries that Calibre had ever touched. I edited the file to remove the entries, started Calibre, and it added the Calibre user guide back to the library and reset all my toolbars. So that is clearly not a good thing to do. (I had made a backup of the directory, so I was able to get back to my original configuraition.)

Is there any safe way to clean up this list to remove obsolete entries?

There is a 'Delete' on the list, it only removes the entry (and will present a message that you must use the OS to remove the Library files)

D'oh ... I don't know how I missed the "remove library" option. Thanks.
