Can I Delete a Presentation?

Overview

Sure! If you use a Google login, your Pear Deck presentations live in Google Drive, which means you organize, share, delete, and restore them all in your own My Drive account. If you use a Microsoft 365 login, your Pear Deck presentations live in your OneDrive and you can manage your files from there. On the Pear Deck Home screen, you can hide recent files, but not delete them.

This article explains how to:

  • Delete a Pear Deck file
  • Restore a file you accidentally deleted
  • Remove (hide) a file from your Pear Deck Home
