Wix Editor: Deleting Something From Your Site

You may want to update your site and remove components that you no longer need, like elements, pages, or apps. You can delete these at any time so your content stays fresh and relevant.
In this article, learn more about:

Deleting single elements

You can delete an element from your site by either using the Delete key on your keyboard, or the right-click menu.

To delete an element from your site:

  1. Open the Editor.
  2. Click the relevant element to select it.
  3. Choose how you want to delete the element:
    • Keyboard: Press Delete on your keyboard.
    • Right-click menu: Right-click the element, then click Delete.
The right-click menu in the Editor. The cursor is hovering over the Delete option.

Deleting multiple elements

You can select and delete multiple elements at once in the Editor. This is especially useful if you have a lot of elements that you want to remove, as you don't have to delete each of them manually.

To select and delete multiple elements:

  1. Open the Editor.
  2. Click and drag your cursor to mark all the relevant elements.
  3. Choose how you want to delete the elements:
    • Keyboard: Press Delete on your keyboard.
    • Right-click menu: Right-click the element, then click Delete.
The right-click menu in the Editor. The elements have been multi-selected. The cursor is hovering over the Delete option.
Tip:
You can also multi-select elements by holding down the Ctrl key on your keyboard and clicking the relevant elements.

Deleting pages from your site

If you no longer want to keep a page on your site, you can delete it from the Menus and Pages panel. Keep in mind that pages displayed in the site menu are automatically removed as menu items when you delete them.

To delete a page from your site:

  1. Open the Editor.
  2. Click Menus & Pages  on the left side of your Editor.
  3. Click the relevant page.
  4. Click the More Actions icon .
  5. Click Delete .
The Menu & Page panel in the Editor. The cursor is hovering over the option to delete an FAQ page.

Deleting apps from your site

The way to delete an app from your site depends on where it appears:
  • A full page app in the Editor: Certain apps like Wix Stores, Wix Blog, or Wix Bookings add pages to your site. You cannot just delete the page, you need to delete the app from Manage Apps
  • An app placed on a page in your Editor: Some apps don't take up an entire page – these are elements / widgets that you can place on any site page. To delete this type of app, simply remove the relevant element from your page
  • An app in your site's dashboard: Some apps work in the background and aren't added to your Editor. They only appear in your site's dashboard, and that's where you can remove them. 
The 'Manage Apps' panel of the Wix App Market. The cursor is hovering over the option to delete Wix Stores.
Note:
If you delete an app with a paid subscription, make sure you also cancel the subscription from your account
