How to delete a Group from the Address Book

How do I delete a Group from the Address Book?  I do not want to delete the contacts in the group.  I simply don't need the group anymore and do not want to see it in my group list.  Thank you.

Open the address book, click on the Group Name on the left side, and choose delete near the top of the window.

Re: How to delete a Group from the Address Book

For some reason, I can't seem to delete a group from address book.  I've tried in full version and in lite.  No luck.. It must be simple, but its not clear to me how to do this.

Re: How to delete a Group from the Address Book

Let's start with using the Full Version of XC first.

 

Click on the address book

On the left side, click on the name of the Group

A window will open like this one below

Group.JPG

 

Below this window you will see the email addresses of those in that Group

Place a checkmark in the box to the left of the email address

Click on DELETE above the addresses.

You will be asked if you are sure you want to delete, click on OK.

 

In the LITE version:

 

Open the address book

Scroll to the Group name

Click on the Group Name to open the Group

Click on EDIT

A window will open showing this below.  remove Group contact in Lite.JPG

 

 

 

Below THAT, you will see the email addresses of those in the Group with a box to the left of each one.  UNCHECK the box of the one you want to delete

Click on SAVE

 

Let us know if this worked for you.  Note:  In the FULL version, it may take longer to see the contact removed!

Ah, totally missed the bar.  Looking all over the place, not sure how I missed it.  Thanks.
