Delete a form

  1. Go to Microsoft Forms, sign in with your Microsoft 365 work or school account or Microsoft personal account (Hotmail, Live, or Outlook.com).

    Note: You can also log in to Office.com, look for the Microsoft 365 icons on the left, and then select Forms.

  2. Scroll down to the bottom of your page and select All My Forms.

    Link to All My Forms for Microsoft forms on Office.com

  3. On the All forms tab, find the form you want to delete. Select More options in the upper right corner of its tile, and then choose Delete.

    Tip: If you don't see form tiles, you might be in "list view" instead of "tile view." To delete a form within "list view," hover to the right of the form, select More options, and then select Delete.

    Note: Once in the recycle bin, a form will remain there indefinitely unless you intentionally delete it from the recycle bin as well.

    Tip: If you've signed in with a Microsoft 365 work or school account, you'll also see a Move option, which allows you to transfer ownership of your form. Learn more.

Recover a deleted form

  1. Go to the Deleted forms tab. This tab serves as your recycle bin.

    Note: Each Forms user can create up to 200 single forms, which include those on the Deleted forms tab. (For example, 150 forms in the Microsoft Forms portal + 50 forms on the Deleted forms tab = 200 forms.) If you have both a Forms account and Dynamics 365 Customer Voice (formerly Microsoft Forms Pro) account, your 200 forms limit spans both accounts.

  2. On the form you want to delete, select More options in the lower right corner of the form tile, and then click Restore.

  3. To see your recovered form, go to your All forms tab.

Permanently delete a form

  1. Go to the Deleted forms tab.

  2. On the form you want to delete, select More options in the lower right corner of the form tile, and then select Delete.

    Note: If you delete a form from the Deleted forms tab, the form and all of its responses are permanently deleted. You won't be able to bulk delete forms. Instead, you'll need to delete forms, one by one, in order to permanently remove all forms from the Deleted forms tab.
