Custom Shapes List Duplicates

I am using Photoshop 21.1.1. on a Mac

I was using the dropdown shapes panel for custom shapes and hit the "Restore Default Shapes" command in the panel seettings menu.

This added a duplicate list of the default shapes already in the panel, I did this a second time and now have three repeats of the the default list, see attached screenshot.

I can't find any way to delete these duplicates - the delete command remains greyed out for every action I can think of.

Is there a solution to this problem?

Use the Shapes panel from the Window menu (not the options bar). ~ Jane

Thank you so much. I had the same issue with duplicate shapes. I was getting frustrated searching for the folders to delete the shapes.
