Have you finished with a project but keep getting notifications that don't concern you anymore? Try cleaning up your Notion workspace by either deleting or moving your pages—it's easy
Decluttering your Notion workspace gives you a clear mindset to begin your next project. You can delete old pages or inactive workspaces with a few simple steps!
How to Delete Pages in Notion
The "Trash" function in Notion is a handy tool to help stay organized.
When you delete a page in your workspace, it does not permanently delete it. The deleted page moves to "Trash," and it will stay there until you manually delete it, again. So, the "Trash" can act as an archival space, too. Not to worry, as there is a way to delete and restore your pages in Notion.
If you want to delete or move your Notion workspace instead, we have a different guide to show you how to do that.

To Delete Pages in Your Notion Workspace
- Hover over the page in your left sidebar.
- Click the "•••" icon.
- Select "Delete" from the menu
- Other ways to delete your pages include:
- Dragging any page or content block into the Trash.
- Selecting any page block and press the backspace or delete keys.
- Hovering over a sub-page on an existing page to delete it by clicking on the ⋮⋮ icon (or right-click) to see the option to delete it.
To Permanently Delete Pages in Notion
- Go to "Trash."
- Locate the page you want to permanently delete.
- Find the "Trash" icon next to the page you want to delete to permanently remove it.
To Find Pages in Your Notion Trash
- Click to open and view the "Trash" files. You will either see:
- All Pages: A compilation of all the pages deleted from your workspace.
- Current Page: The sub-pages are deleted from the page you are currently viewing.
To Restore Deleted Pages in Your Workspace
- Open your "Trash."
- Find the deleted page you want to recover.
- Click on the curved arrow icon next to it to restore the page to its original form.
You cannot empty your trash instantaneously. You have to delete each page individually in your trash.
How to Delete or Move a Notion Workspace
If deleting old pages isn't enough and your workspace is still a mess, you can also move your workspaces if you change emails. Sometimes starting with a blank slate is the only feasible option, and that's okay, too!
If you created a new account, you could also transfer your existing workspace without losing your notes, templates, and other data.
