Deleting a label
In repositories where you have write access, you can delete a label if you no longer need it to classify issues or pull requests.
Deleting a label will remove the label from any issues or pull requests where it's been applied.
- On GitHub, navigate to the main page of the repository.
- Under your repository name, click Issues or Pull requests.
- Above the list of issues or pull requests, click Labels.
- In the labels list, to the right of the label you want to delete, click Delete.
