how do I delete theme in installation

how do I delete the chicago theme?

    Hi @Michael,

    I hope you are having a good day.

    To delete theme means removing all of the chicago theme files which normally stays under
    yoursiteroot/wp-contents/themes/chicago .

    Either you can delete those files via ftp client of on your host server. Or more easier you can just delete theme from the wordpress admin panel.

    Follow these steps to delete theme via wordpress admin panel.

    #1 Log in to wordpress admin panel
    #2 Head over to admin menu Appearance--> Themes
    #3 There you will find your chicago theme.
    #4 If it already activated you can't delete it. So first de-activate theme.
    #5 Then just click on chicago theme.
    #6 It will open window which displays theme information. At the bottom left corner you will see delete link in red colored text.
    #6 Click on that link.

    That's it.. :slight_smile:

    Just one note I want to make. Deleting theme will deletes all of its files. So if you've made any changes to theme core files make sure that you've taken backup of those changes.

    I hope this helps you.
