Delete a channel in Teams

Team owners get to decide which team members can delete and restore channels.

Tip: If you’re considering deleting a channel because you’re being inundated by notifications about new messages, you can instead just turn off notifications.

To delete a channel, go to the channel name and click More options More options button > Delete this channel.

Keep in mind that once you delete a channel, you also lose its entire conversation history. However, the OneNote sections associated with that channel will still show up on your team's SharePoint site.

Go to the desktop or web app to delete a channel.

Tap Teams Teams button , go to the team name, and tap More options More options button > Manage channels. Then tap More options More options button next to the channel name and select Delete channel.
