Delete a custom view of a document library

Note: Some functionality is introduced gradually to organizations that have opted in to the First Release program. This means that you may not yet see this feature or it may look different than what is described in the help articles.

Use the following procedure to delete a view.

  1. For a document library, go to the library for which you want to delete a view.

  2. Click the drop-down arrow for All Documents, and then select Manage Views.

    Manage Views command
  3. Scroll down the settings page to the Views section, and click the view you want to delete.

  4. In the top area of the view, click Delete.

    Note:  If Delete is not an option, this may be the default view for a list or library. You must first modify another view and make it the default.

  5. When prompted, click OK.
