Delete a SharePoint Site

In case you need to delete a SharePoint site (and its entire content), the process is pretty straight forward.
The same applies for SharePoint 2013/2016 and SharePoint Online (at the time of writing: Dec. 2017)

Assuming you have the correct permissions to do so, simply follow these steps:

  • Log into the SharePoint site you wish to delete
  • On the top left corner, click on the gear icon >> Site settings
  • Under Site Actions, click on Delete this site

DeleteThisSite_img

 

  • Make sure you read and understand the implications of deleting the site

Deleting_Site_img

  • Once you’re sure, click Delete
  • Then click OK to send this website to the Site Collection Recycle bin

NOTE:
If you have any subsites under the site you are trying to delete, the deletion will not work. You need to delete the subsites first.
