    Welcome to the Microsoft Q&A (Preview) platform. Happy to answer your question.

    Please follow these steps to delete your Azure AD B2C tenant:

    2. Delete all the Applications you registered in your Azure AD B2C tenant.

    Click on the link where it says, get permission to delete Azure Resources and then you will get a window as below:

    alt text

    Select Yes and then try again.

    I tried to change access management for azure resources to "yes" and it kept going back to "no"

    Tried loggin out and back in but no good.

    After maybe 20-30 minutes it took the "yes" and i was able to finally delete.
