Deleting a Notebook

Recommended Posts

Newbie David here, I'm trying out the basic version and have been able to delete individual notes but how do you delete an entire notebook.  I've read the instructions in the forums but

I'm having the same problem as others.  When I right click a notebook there is no "Delete Option" - Any response is appreciated! Tks, D.N.

Hi.  Go to the Notebooks page.  Choose the 3 dots menu at the far right of the unwanted notebook name.  Click "delete notebook".

Additional information: The notebooks content will be moved to the trash, so all of the notes will be still available, until Trash is emptied.

However it is not possible to restore the notebook itself. So if there are many notes in the notebook to be deleted, think about it twice. Recovery must be done note by note ...

Using Evernote/Web, we don't right-click 881433902_ScreenShot2019-06-24at08_11_01.png.553faeeb945f63335361975efb444b6f.png
It triggers browser options instead of Evernote options

Select the notebook page in the sidebar

Move the mouse pointer to a notebook

Your mouse is pointing to a Stack
Move the mouse pointer over the March 2016 notebook, you'll see the delete option to the right

I figured out the problem! You were right I only have 1 Notebook.  I created another notebook for a total of 2, then when I went to delete 1 of them the trashcan does show up!

I really appreciated your extra effort in helping a Newbie (71 Yrs Old & Not A Geek)! David

There is no delete notebook option anywhere. See attached screenshots, both selected notebook and notebook list. How is one suppose to delete notebooks in the "New Evernote Web"?

The post just before yours suggests that if you only have one notebook, you can't delete it. Is that your situation? I find that when I have one of my notebooks selected and click on the horizontal 3-dot menu I get the drop-down shown below. I notice that the other option missing in your screenshots is "Set as default notebook," which would also be impossible if you only have one notebook.
