Experts Exchange gives you the option to delete your question if you have not found a solution to your issue.  However, before deleting your question, make sure to respond to all Expert comments and try reporting the question for a Moderator to help you out.


To delete a question without comments, please follow these steps:

  • Log into your Experts Exchange account.
  • Go to the question you would like to delete.
  • Click on the 3 ellipses located below your original post.
  • Click Delete Question. 
 

You will be redirected back to the home page.

What if experts have responded to my question but there's no answer?

If you have comments on your question but there's no solution to your issue, you can request to delete your question.  This will start a 4 day auto-close process where the participating experts on the question can object to your deletion request.  If there are no objections, your question will be deleted after 4 days.

To delete a question with comments, please follow these steps:
  • Log into your Experts Exchange account.
  • Go to the question you would like to delete.
  • Click on the 3 ellipses located below your original post.  
  • Click Delete Question.
