Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a test group I created in SharePoint that I want to delete (I'm the only user in the group). In the "People and Groups: All Groups" screen I click the edit icon next to the group and then click on the "Delete" button and ok the following warning dialog. However, the group doesn't get deleted. Any idea why this is happening and how to finally delete this group? Thanks.

  1. Go to Site Actions -> Site Settings -> People and Groups
  2. Click on the group and check all the users -> Actions -> Remove Users from Group
  3. Click on Settings -> Group Settings -> then click delete at the bottom of the page.

Actually, it's because of this: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sharepoint2010general/thread/58259240-8e18-4142-8e37-c9f42009c12d. Go to the post by FeytensJ on 12/14/10. In a nutshell, being a site collection administrator is the minimum permissions level necessary.
