How to delete a theme in WordPress

How we can delete an already installed theme of WordPress when we do not have the root access for the files of the same.

Suppose, your client gave you the admin login details of the WordPress and you installed a new WordPress theme using those login details of the admin of that WordPress website.

But now, for any reason, you want to delete an already installed WordPress theme which you installed, though you can simply install an another new one activate that new one and the old one(which you are wanting to delete) will not be shown to the users, at all; but it will remain with the website and the admin of that WordPress will be able to see that inactive(the one which you are wanting to delete) theme. So you need to delete it if you even do not want this them to be with that website and visible to the admin of that same website. But since you do not have the root access of the files of the same website, then how you can delete it?

Lets see how we can make this happen.

Go to the login page of the same website and then login as the admin.  Then after login, click: "Appearance > Theme".  Now install a new them by clicking "Add New" button or activate an another already existing theme. Now be very much sure that the theme you are going to delete is NOT active.

Now hover your mouse cursor over theme which you want to delete and it will show a "Theme Details" button on that theme, on which the mouse cursor is. Click this particular button and you will be taken to the details section of this particular theme.  If you have clicked the "Theme Details" button of a wrong theme(which you are not wanting to delete) and reached into its Theme Details page, then just click he cross sign (X), at the top-right corner of the same opened page and you will be taken to the all the installed theme page, where from you had selected this theme.

Now see there is a "Delete" red colored button is there at the extreme bottom-right corner of the same page. Click this button and your theme will be deleted from the server, where this particular website is hosted and then it will not be visible from the admin section.
