How can I eliminate 'collections' from my URL structure?

Is there a way to remove the Collections directory in the URL structure?  It's my bugbear with Shopify.  

It just adds another, and in my opinion unnecessary step to the URLs. 

 

Why not have mywebsite.com/watches/diamond-watch 

rather than mywebsite.com/collections/watches/diamond-watch

 

Perhaps I'm behind in my knowledge and there is indeed a way to sort this?

In Shopify, as per my knowledge, it's not possible to remove it (collections) from the slug.

Go To Shopify Themes > Select Edit Code > Search the product files there > Search for "within: collection"  and remove it from all product-related files of your theme.

Dear Aliahmer how to do this for Studio theme. I can't find it in the code.

Do you think you could perhaps provide a screenshot to illustrate, or perhaps a link to a tutorial?
