I am trying to use htaccess to remove the .html tag and the /folder/ from the URL. Spent hours on google trying to find something that works.

If anyone could link me to a working example or help me would be extremely appreciated

This is what I have right now:

Options +FollowSymLinks -MultiViews
# Turn mod_rewrite on
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME}.html -f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/$
RewriteRule (.*) $1\.html [L]

RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^[A-Z]{3,}\s/+pages/([^\s]+) [NC]
RewriteRule ^ %1 [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule (?!^pages/)^(.*)$ /pages/$1 [L,NC]

But it does not remove all of the html tags for some reason and I can still see the /folder/. Also I can't view the index file normally anymore it just looks like this:

It won't change what you see on the directory index, URL rewriting just changes how the server interprets URLs, You can't change the default directory index, but you can override it by creating an index.html file.
