How to Delete a Dash Button
Dash Buttons are personalized shortcuts to help Prime members quickly find and reorder their favorite products. They allow customers to skip the checkout line and get items delivered to them with 1-click on tens of millions of products that ship with Prime. Dash Buttons are available on the product details page for any item that can be reordered.
To delete a dashboard tile, click the Tile menu () and select Delete Tile. This also deletes the underlying query and cannot be undone. If you want to remove the tile but preserve the query, unplace the tile instead.
If you have a spreadsheet in which you want to remove all dashes, open the spreadsheet and highlight the cells that contain the dashes. Click the “Text” button from the Kutools menu view at the top of the screen — it looks like a capital T. In the dialog box that opens, click “Remove Characters…” and follow the instructions to replace the dashes with spaces.
You can use the SUBSTITUTE function to remove individual dashes from your spreadsheet. Download the Kutools plugin and follow the program instructions to install it.

How to Delete a Virtual Dash Button
When Amazon launched its ludicrous Dash buttons in 2015 they were considered to be somewhat of an April Fools joke. These Wi-Fi connected buttons allowed you to reorder a specific product with one push, and were marketed as a way to order things like toilet paper as soon as you notice that your supply is running low. While the concept was pretty silly it seemed to do some good business for Amazon, which offered a number of unique ways to expand the button experience (like ordering a specific brand of Hunt’s canned tomatoes or Mucinex) and even got companies to offer specialized Dash Replenishment buttons in their appliances.
Eventually, though, the novelty of these plastic buttons began to wear off and people started to abandon them in droves. Some complained that the buttons were clunky and hard to set up, while others found them to be more of a prank than anything else. The fact that they could be pressed accidentally by toddlers also didn’t help.
In the end, it seems as if Amazon realized the buttons weren’t really doing anyone any favors and pulled the plug on them. The company has since expanded its virtual Dash button offerings and introduced more convenient shopping options that don’t require a physical button, including a subscription service that lets you automatically reorder items once they’re low. There are also still a few different ways to get products delivered on an as-needed basis, including the company’s Alexa integrations and its upcoming smart refrigerator that will let you place orders from its touchscreen.
If you already had a physical Dash button, don’t worry: Amazon will transfer the buttons to a new dashboard where you can sort, label, and delete them. You can find the dashboard by going to a product page and choosing “Add to Your Dash Buttons.” If you’re thinking of getting more virtual buttons, you can create them on the Amazon home page or at Your Dash Buttons, where you’ll also be able to see your current selection. You can also edit your filter settings from there.
How to Delete a Physical Dash Button
Launched in 2015, the physical Dash button was Amazon’s answer to those who wanted to reorder specific items quickly without having to talk to a salesperson or even open a computer. The $5 buttons, each dedicated to a single product (like Hunt’s canned tomatoes or Tide detergent) would work by launching an order on Amazon from a Wi-Fi connection when you pressed the button.
Amazon has since moved on from the physical Dash button, replacing it with its own virtual version as well as a service called Dash Replenishment that works to automatically reorder products that you use regularly, such as laundry detergent or diapers. It also began adding Dash functionality to appliances through a software development kit for third parties.
In the case of physical Dash buttons, the buttons were small plastic gadgets that you could stick in your home where they were most likely to be pressed, such as next to the washing machine for laundry detergent or on the kitchen counter for paper towels. Despite being billed as the acme of Amazon’s efficiency ethos, the buttons were actually little more than an odd way to encourage you to spend money on things you might not have thought about ordering on your own otherwise.
Luckily, the physical Dash button experiment is officially over and all buttons will stop working on August 31. But don’t worry, you won’t lose access to any purchases you’ve made with them — they’ll still be in your account and will be able to be ordered again at any time.
The physical Dash button was a unique product that spoke to the changing ways we buy and shop online. But the emergence of other, more sophisticated solutions like voice shopping through Alexa is likely to have contributed to its demise, as it’s far easier for you to reorder anything on Amazon with just one tap.
If you’d like to get a virtual replacement for your physical Dash button, you can create one by searching for the item that it was designed to reorder on Amazon and then clicking on “Add to Your Dash Buttons.” From there, you can see all of your active buttons, both physical and virtual, organized and sorted via a dedicated Dash buttons dashboard on the website. You can also label your buttons and delete them, if you decide you don’t want them anymore.
How to Delete a Widget
When you create a dashboard with widgets, you can add and remove them at any time. To do so, simply click on the ellipsis () in the upper right corner of a widget to reveal a dropdown menu. From there, you can select “Delete” to remove the widget from your dashboard. You can also delete multiple widgets at once by selecting them and then clicking the ellipsis button again.
In addition to deleting widgets, you can also delete individual filters from your dashboard. To do so, first select the dashboard you want to edit and then select the filter you wish to delete. Once you’ve selected a widget, click the ellipsis button again to open the menu and then select “Delete.” Please note that deleting a filter will permanently delete all of the associated report widgets from your dashboard, so be careful!
If you’re looking to delete a specific widget, you can do so by clicking the ellipsis button in the upper right corner of the widget and then selecting “Delete.” You can also select multiple widgets and then click the ellipsis button again in the menu to delete them all at once. You can also clear all of the filters on your dashboard by clicking the ellipsis button again and then selecting “Clear All Filters.”
For most Android devices, you can delete widgets by either tapping and holding a blank space on your Home screen or pinching your home screen with two fingers. After you’ve selected the widget you want to remove, tap and drag it towards the top of your screen until it turns red, then release the widget.
The Widgets button is one of the most used features on a smartphone, but it can get pretty cluttered if you have too many. To make room for new widgets, you can swipe right on your Home or Lock screen and touch and hold an empty area in Today View until the apps jiggle, then tap the Add button. You can also customize your widgets by dragging and dropping them into different areas on the Home screen or changing their size in Today View.
