Over time as you create and delete accounts, you may find that the folder structure you created isn’t ideal anymore. You may want to rename an existing folder, making sense as you add related items to it. You may also wish to delete a folder entirely if you no longer need it and have deleted all of the accounts it once contained. Thankfully in Bitwarden, it is easy to edit or delete folders whenever you want.
