I wrote a blog post on How to Delete a Team Project from Team Foundation Service Collection back in June. Since then, the TFS team added a feature on deleting a TFS project via an user interface. It is great seeing the improvements to the technology we use that Team Foundation Service is making.
Since this update is not obvious to the everyday user, I listed the steps below on how to delete a project. The trick is getting to the correct location that shows all of the listed projects. Then, you click on the down arrow at the front of each project name and simply select delete. I took the following steps to delete a project.
1. To begin, ensure the permissions are set-up so you can delete a project. Then, from any project screen, click the little gear in the upper right corner.
2. Here is the tricky part. To access the control panel, click the gear icon for this specific project. If you go up one level, you can set-up permissions or delete a project. Once you are on this screen, click on the DefaultCollection in the upper left corner.
3. Now that you are in the Control Panel of the Default Collection, go to the security tab. Then, find your user account setting; confirm you permission to delete the team project; and finally, ensure your account is set as inherited correctly or allow explicitly.
4. Now, click the overview tab to see your list of projects. Finally, select delete by clicking the down arrow in front of the project you want to delete.
