Do you see the option to delete the group on the context menu?

It must be a sync fobt folder.

It is best to upgrade to the latest version, but even with your version it can be deleted through font folders.

Sorry, I did, but I still can´t figure out how to delete those groups (now they are empty folders), I would appreciate a step-by-step guide, (I do not understand why it is so difficult in this program to install or uninstall an empty group)

Thanks in advance

If it is synced, it is not possible. If it is not synced, it is easy.
  1. Open the Font Folder (Ctrl L) from the Library Menu
  2. Edit the folder that the group belongs to
  3. Remove the tick from the "Keep in sync" checkbox
  4. Now you can delete the group

Thank´s lot sir you have been a great help.

It would be good in the next updates, that the administration of the groups, a dialogue box warns that the group can not be eliminated because it is in sync, plus how to proceed to eliminate it.

All the best.
