Deleting documents 

You can see all of your saved documents at If you’d like to delete a document, hover over the document you want to delete and click the trash bin icon: 


Documents in your trash bin will be permanently deleted after 30 days. If you need to permanently delete a document before that timeframe is over, go to Trash and click the trash bin icon next to the corresponding document: 


If you’d like to delete all documents from your Trash, click Empty Trash as shown below: 


Important! This action will delete your documents permanently, and you won’t be able to restore them in the future. 

Recovering documents

If you deleted your document by accident, you’ll have a couple of seconds to undo your action. To undo, click the Undo button on the pop-up message that appears right after deletion: 


If you deleted your document within the last 30 days, you can also restore it by going to Trash and clicking Restore


If you deleted a document more than 30 days ago, it has been permanently deleted, and unfortunately, we won’t be able to recover it. 

Recovering document versions

If you need to recover a part of your text, press Command + Z on macOS or Ctrl + Z on Windows. 

Additionally, if you accidentally deleted a chunk of text, you can click the Undo button on the pop-up in the Grammarly Editor: 


If you were unable to undo your action, contact us as soon as possible, and we will do our best to help you.
