To remove unwanted databases in XAMPP, follow these steps:

  1. Open the phpMyAdmin tool by typing "http://localhost/phpmyadmin/" in your web browser.
  2. Log in to phpMyAdmin using the username and password for your MySQL database.
  3. In the left-hand panel, you will see a list of databases. Click on the database you want to remove.
  4. Once you have selected the database, click on the "Operations" tab at the top of the page.
  5. Scroll down to the section titled "Remove database" and click on the "Drop" link next to it.
  6. You will be prompted to confirm that you want to drop the database. Click on "Yes" to proceed.
  7. The database will be deleted, and you will receive a confirmation message.
  8. Repeat these steps for any other unwanted databases you want to remove.


Please be cautious when deleting databases, as this action cannot be undone and all data stored in the database will be lost. Make sure to back up any important data before proceeding with deleting the database.
