PowerShell script: Delete all lists on your current site

A sluggish performance from your site can have negative consequences. One of the culprits is accumulated lists that are no longer required but haven’t been dealt with. Why not? Often because it takes a long time, requiring logging on to the site and performing various steps to get the job done. Other tasks are prioritized and ultimately there is a problem. Here, we show you how to delete lists on your site whose names are text-based.

Here is the file code: DeleteListsOnCurrentSite.ps1.txt

How does it work?

Example: You created lists with the same names. You’ve confirmed they are no longer required on the site and they should be deleted for improved performance.

Step 1: Please click here to download: DeleteListsOnCurrentSite.ps1 

Run DeleteListsOnCurrentSite.ps1 file with PowerShell.

Step 2: Input your chosen parameters as pictured below and click Enter.

Step 3: The PowerShell script will show the results while deleting the lists

Step 4: Go to your site to see the final results.
