How do I remove the Windows Library (Empty) label?

I accidentally dragged the pictures library into videos... after fixing the mistake this label now always shows inside the video library. How can I remove this?

There is nothing wrong with that. It shows your default video folder.

Click on "1 Location" and remove the videos folder from the videos library.

I would not remove this folder. If you ever want to store videos in the video library, you need at least one folder - you cannot store anything into a library without an underlying folder.
