Deleting a tag is easy and similar to that of deleting a category – it can be accomplished with a few clicks.
Go to Posts > Tags
First, go to the page containing the tags i.e. Posts > Tags.
After that, hover over the tags and click on the Delete link you see under it.
Doing so, a dialog box will appear asking for confirmation for the deletion of the tag. Just click on OK to delete.
If you want to stop the delete, then click on Cancel.
Deleting Tags in Bulk
Now, you can also delete multiple tags at once easily. This would be useful if you have lots of unwanted tags to delete.
WordPress offers the Bulk Action feature with which you can select multiple tags and delete them at once.
To select the tags to delete, you just need to click on the checkboxes you see before their names. Then, click on the Bulk actions dropdown and select the Delete option. And then, click on Apply.
After that, it will display an alert confirming the delete process is completed.
