You'll need to right click the game(s) and click remove from category. Once the category is empty it's automatically deleted.

Apologies for the necro post, but I can't get the categories to delete even when I remove all the games. Sure they don't show up in the library, but when I click on a game and hit "set category" they're still there.

Is there any way to permanently delete the category so it won't show up when you click "set category"?

Is this fixed yet? Does it still show? I don't want to start making categories if they are not going to go away when I select a game.

Sounds like you uninstalled the games but didn't remove them from the category.

- Right click the game (even uninstalled - just show all games).
- Left click "set category" which will open a menu showing all categories.
- Uncheck the box next to the category.

Once all games in that category are removed then the category should disappear.
