As a website builder, Elementor is undoubtedly one of the most popular and user-friendly tools available in the market. It offers a wide range of features and functionality to create beautifully designed and interactive websites. However, not all sections or blocks created will be used in the final layout. In such cases, it is important to know how to delete sections to keep your workflow clean and organized. In this post, we will take you through an easy and quick step-by-step guide on how to delete a section in Elementor.

Step 1: Open the Elementor Editor

To begin with, open the Elementor editor and select the page or post in which you want to delete a section. Once the page/post is opened, select the section that you would like to delete.

Step 2: Click on the ‘Delete’ Button

Once the section is selected, click on the small gray arrow icon located on the top left corner of the section. This will reveal a dropdown menu with several options, including ‘Delete.’ Click on Delete to remove the selected section.

Step 3: Confirm the Deletion

After pressing the Delete button, a pop-up window will appear asking you whether you want to confirm the deletion. If you are certain that you want to delete the selected section, click on ‘Delete’ in the pop-up window. If you want to keep the section, click ‘Cancel’ to abort the deletion.

Step 4: Save the Changes

After confirming the deletion, press the ‘Update’ button to save the changes made to the page or post. If you forget to save the changes, then the deleted section will still remain visible on the published page.

Step 5: Double-check Before Deleting

Before you go ahead with the deletion, it is essential to make sure that you are deleting the correct section. Sometimes, there might be other sections or elements placed near the selected section, making it easy to select the wrong section. Double-check and confirm that the selected section is the one you wanted to remove.
