    You can but only before it gets an answer, Click Edit and select Delete.

    You can until there has been at least one answer. After that, you cannot.

  • A question can only be deleted if it has no answers. But once a question has an answer the delete option is removed and the question becomes the property of Verizon per their Terms of Service. The only thing you could do now is to make your question anonymous to hide the fact that you asked the question.

    You can delete a question ONLY if it has NO answers. Once a question has even one answer, the delete option is programmed to disappear from underneath the "Edit" button. Yahoo/Verizon OWNS your question and ALL the answers. You agreed to this, twice. If the question has answers, all you can do is make yourself anonymous on that question. Yahoo/Verizon employees can still trace the question back to your email a back to your email account.

    You can only delete them if they have no answers. Click on 'Edit' beside your question and then delete it. If it has an answer the Edit button no longer appears and you cannot delete it.

    IF your question on Yahoo Answers has no answers yet, you can just go into your question and select Edit>Delete. (make sure your mobile device is in desktop mode, if using a mobile)

    .

    IF your question on Yahoo Answers DOES have ANY answers, it cannot be deleted. The only way to get it removed if it has answers from others, from that point on, is to have enough accounts report it as a violation, so the system removes it from the display. You cannot edit or change the info you posted, either. All you can do is add updates to clarify it, and/or make yourself Anonymous (Edit>Post as Anonymous) to hide your identity.

    .

    This is probably the single most asked question, over time, in the Yahoo Answers subcategory. You can save points and time in the future, by doing a search at the top of the page (type in your question or keywords and press "Search Answers"), to see if the question you have has already been asked/answered. How to delete questions has been asked/answered literally thousands of times since the site was created.

    You can only delete a question if there are no answers posted to it. Once there are answers posted, you lose the option to delete the question unless for some reason all the answers get deleted so that it again has no answers posted to it.

    If your question has no answers posted to it, deleting it is easy. You simply click the "Edit" button just beneath the question on the question's page and then in the box that pops up, click "Delete."
