How to delete a page

Here are a couple ways to delete a page. However, a page that is designated as the welcome (home) page--the word default in parenthesis (default)—cannot be deleted. A new page must be designated as the home page first, before that page can be deleted.

  1. Navigate to the page to be deleted
  2. From the Page tab, select Delete Page from the Manage group

    ribbon
  3. Double-check and make sure this is really the page you want to delete. If so, select OK.
  4. The page is deleted and sent to the recycling bin
Manage Content and Structure view
  1. Click Site Actions, and then click Manage Content and Structure

  2. Manage Content and Structure view 

  3. Navigate to the pages folder in the appropriate site
  4. Open the pages folder by clicking on the text Pages in the left-hand navigation pane
  5. In the right-hand pane, select the drop-down menu to the right of the page to be renamed and choose Delete
