How to delete export preset folders that were created by 3rd party apps

I'm trying to clean up my LR workspaces and especially make exporting easier. I cannot find a way to delete the folders created by 3P apps like Luminar from the export menu. The 'remove" button is grayed out on all of the top box folders.

Is there a way to make this happen so I just have a couple of choices to see when I right click on images?

the screen shot shows what I have now...

thanks,

Ok, now I do not really think you want to remove all the exports. Looking at that screenshot, I see you have extra instances of various plug-ins. Oh and they are not presets. I am referring to the third party plug-ins like Aurora,and  Luminar..

To deal with that bring up the Plug-In manager. In the plug-in manager you can remove them from lightrooms knowledge. (as for totally removing, that depends upon the program in question, but typically no)

Thanks, David

I really do want to eliminate all but the user presets I create for exports, but using Plug-in manager, I was able to remove the clutter by 50%. I'd like to remove the Lightroom default presets as well, but I can live with what I now have.

thanks for such quick accurate help !!!

For the actual presets, to remove clutter, and as I see you do mean the presets. It is in fact a great idea to clear up that clutter

In LR, in the Presets panel click the + sign, and select Manage Presets, Uncheck any you do not want to see. (this might be version specific)

That is not how export presets are handled. You are referring to develop presets there.
