How to delete a WordPress Plugin

If you no longer need a WordPress Plugin you installed, you can simply delete it. And this is how you do it:

  1. Log into WordPress Dashboard (/wp-admin)
  2. Click on “Plugins” on the lower left, then you see all installed plugins.
  3. First “Deactivate” the plugin before deleting it (if not already done so).
  4. Delete the plugin by clicking on “Delete”.
