Delete a page from a SharePoint site

SharePoint site owners and administrators can easily delete modern pages from a SharePoint site.

Notes: 

  • Some functionality is introduced gradually to organizations that have opted in to the Targeted 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.

  • You must be a site owner or SharePoint administrator to delete pages. If you are a site owner but you are unable to delete a page, your administrator may have turned off the ability to do so. 

Delete your page

You can delete your page in the Page details pane on the page itself. 

  1. Ensure the page is in edit mode by selecting Edit at the top right of the page.

  2. On the command bar, select Gear shaped settings buttonPage details.

  3. Select Delete page.

  4. Confirm or cancel your deletion in the confirmation box that appears by selecting Delete or Cancel.

You can also delete your page through your Sharepoint site's Site contents. 

  1. Go to the site where your page is.

  2. On the left side navigation, click Pages.

    If you don't see Pages on the left side, click Site Contents from Settings Gear shaped settings button in the upper right, then on the left side of the Site Contents page, click Pages.

  3. Select the page, and then click the ellipses (...) to the right of the selected page.

  4. Click Delete.

    Note: Deleting a page will also remove any site navigation to it (such as the side navigation of the site). However, it will not automatically remove any other direct links to the page (such as an embedded link in another part of the site) - these must be removed manually.

If you find that you need to restore the page after you've deleted it, you can restore it from the recycle bin.

Note: Deleting and then restoring a site page does not affect its version history. If you delete and then restore a page, you can still access its version history.
