How to Delete a Site from SharePoint

Special Note

Some of SharePoint's functionality depends on ActiveX, which is only supported in Internet Explorer (32-bit). If you're using a web browser that is not Internet Explorer and you run into problems, try using Internet Explorer in compatibility mode instead.

You must have permissions to the SharePoint site you are trying to delete in order to delete it.
