Hi Keith,

Here are the steps to close a board:

  1. Open the board you would like to archive.
  2. Tap the three dots at the top right of the screen.
  3. Select "Board settings."
  4. Select "Close board."

If you want to permanently delete it, here is a blog post that describes next steps with visuals:

Please let me know if this helps.

Have a great day!

Thanks @Jodi LeBlanc! Trello is something I'm still relatively new to and this totally helped me clean up a "test" board.

Thanks so much @Jimmy Seddon - I am glad you found this helpful :)

I had the same question! Thsi video expalins it:

This answer should include the fact that the deleter/archiver must be an admin of the board.

I am not the admin. Do not know how the other team member becamse so. This is an old Board on my own account and is taking up valuable space!  How can I delete it if I'm not the admin but it is on my account?
