How to remove a repository?

I am using the latest version of Sourcetree on Windows (the one without the list of repos on the left side).  I can't find out how to delete a repository.  I use to right click on the repo on the left list and delete it but now that list is gone in the new version. So what is the correct way to delete a repo using Sourcetree?

In the 'New' tab, accessed via the +, you can open the Local list of repositories or bookmarks. You can then right-click and use the context menu to remove any bookmarks you want.

That's horrific UX! The fact we both needed to search to find out how to do something as simple as removing a repo means it's bad design, surely?

I kinda' agree.

It does feel that this is a decision that should never have been made.

Remarkable piece of user interface design, that I should delete a local repository via the '+' button. Spent a good 10 minutes looking before finding this thread.

It is something of a relief to me that I am not the only one who could not find this.

I also wasted lot of time trying to work out how to delete repository or simply get to a list. The whole management of repositories and user accounts is broken in source tree it's appalling. To have to click on the new tab to get a list of your repositories is such astonishingly poor design someone should be fired.

2022 and still ugly UX

Having the left panel on the side before was much better. I have no idea why they would change that. That's a bad design. 

We are on 2019 and still is like that. Man, it is horrible! is Atlassiana company?
