New stock install of PVE.

I created a couple of test VMs; things work fine. Now I would like to delete them.

Somehow I don't find any "delete" or "destroy" option in the Web UI. And also not in the PDF guide, or in the forum search.

What is the procedure to delete a VM? Delete the config file from /etc/pve and then manually delete the LV?

==================
Answer: You can delete or destroy by stop it HA first if you have enabled HA and then you can delete by select on VM --> More (Select Dropdown list--> Remove)
