To safely delete an element:

  2. On the main menu, choose Refactor > Safe Delete.

    Tip: Alternatively, right-click on the element and choose Refactor > Safe Delete on the element's context menu.

  3. In the Safe Delete dialog box that reports the element to delete and any usages of that element:
    • If no usages are found, press Delete.
    • If usages are found, click View usages. The Refactorings pane opens allowing you to review the refactoring before committing it. Click the Apply Refactoring button to delete the element.
