How Do I delete Transfers that show up under Categories List?

QW 17. Just trying to clean up a 25 yr+ data file. Got to be some way to do this. It does not work like deleting other categories. Gives no option to delete or even hide.
Thanks

    As you probably know, you cannot delete any category that has any activity. That said, I find I have only one transfer category that has no usage and as you say, cannot delete. I suspect the only way you can delete a transfer category would be to delete the associated accounts. Since these are in reality Accounts and not Categories.

    I experimented with one account and deleted all transactions and the account itself, and the transfer still shows up in Categories with no way to delete it. Seems like this should work, but it did not.

    Might look into Year End.

    Depends on how OCD you are. o:) I never even looked at Transfers category until your post. Is it worth the effort?

    Probably not. I think I am finished with it.
    Thanks
