How Do I Delete List/Plan in Microsoft "Tasks by Planner and To Do"

Michael Adams 306 Reputation points

At the bottom of the "Tasks by Planner" program there is a menu item "New list or plan". I clicked this, and added a Task (starts with the word "Have". See below with red arrow. I want to delete the Task, but do not see any menu item to do this.

Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi @Michael Adams

    You can manage the lists of tasks from the To Do application. You can access it from here :

    Then when clicking on your tasks list, you have a menu next to its title to manage it in the main screen (rename, delete, print).

    Got it! You go to the Teams tab (see the left menu), then, in the right up, you can see and remove your List/Plan!

    Here is an update on this.

    Jimmy's method of going to the To-Do application online does work.

    I also found out you can delete this by going into your Outlook desktop application, click on the "My Tasks" icon on the bottom left, and you can delete the task that way.

    Update: It looks like Microsoft may have fixed the original issue. You can now right click on the Task, and left click on Delete.

    Now you have three ways to delete the task.
