Good day all,

Over time, I have developed more than 40 local adjustments presets, and now I'm running out of screen space. When I open the "Effect" tab, the list is so long that to reach the bottom I have to click on the down triangle to reveal the rest of the presets. I still don't' understand why the mouse scroll doesn't work with this list. Anyway, I need to remove the top 17 presets that are in-built in Lightroom to free up some space. They do not exist in the preset folder C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom\Local Adjustment Presets. Only the ones I created are there.

My Google search didn't return any answers. Please share your knowledge with me. It will save me heaps of time in post.

The folder you mention is the user folder for custom presets. Presets that come with Lightroom are stored in another folder, but I don’t think you can remove these presets except by hacking the application.

As Johan has indicated, the local adjustments listed are stored elsewhere e.g. (application package on Mac). While it's possible to remove them they'll be instated next time Lr updates.

Thank you, Ian. Can you please point to how they can be removed? I am happy to take the effort and delete them with the updates.

I think they actually showed up not long ago. Maybe one or two updates ago. Someone in Adobe decided it is a good idea to fix something that is working fine.

Thank you! As I stated, the presets are NOT in C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom\Local Adjustment Presets

Do you know where are they located?

Removing the factory presets will be difficult to impossible.

I would do something like renaming your presets to start with an underscore so that they are all grouped at the top of the list.

Thanks, Joe,

These are always on top regardless of the naming.

I still can't comprehend how Adobe would put such useless presets that the user can't remove. There is got to be a way to delete them.

Unfortunately, the top 17 presets are coded into the app, thus they cannot be deleted by us end users.

Are there any updates on this topic in mid-2021? These are getting in the way more and more.

Adobe, please make those customisable presets.

No change, still the same klutzy 17 names at the top of the menu that are completely useless to most users.
