Deleting Tasks

To delete a task you don't need, select the row heading and then press the Delete key.

In Microsoft Project 2000 and earlier, when you clicked a task name and pressed the Delete key, the entire task row was deleted. Now the Delete indicator appears in the Indicators column, enabling you to choose whether to delete the entire task or just the task name (see Figure 3-17).

Figure 3-17. Click the down arrow next to the Delete indicator to choose what you want to delete.

If you want to delete the entire task, click the indicator. If you simply want to clear the task name, press Enter or click elsewhere in the view.
