    Hello! I'm new to the forum and hope I can find some help here. I've searched but not found an answer to the following:

    I accidentally moved one of my bookmarks folders inside another bookmark folder. I cannot figure out how to move it out of the folder. If I select edit bookmarks and select the three-line icon I can move the inner folder within the outer folder but I don't seem to be able to move it outside the folder.

    Any suggestions?

    Hi, welcome to iPF!

    I've just moved a single bookmark, but it works the same way with a whole folder.
    Open Bookmarks in Safari, where your folder is. Now tap "Edit".

    You should already be familiar with this sight. :)
    Now, neither tap the red "Delete" button, nor the three lines, but choose the folder you intend to move. You will find this:

    Here you have the possibility to choose where to move the folder (the bar with the arrow). Tap it:

    These would be my options.
    This way you should be able to get the folder out of the other folder.
