Welcome to my Linux Commands for Beginners tutorial series, where I’ll show you how to use the Linux Command shell (specifically Bash) one command at a time. This series aims to take you from a beginner to an advanced user, one video at a time.

In this video I show you how to remove users from your Linux system.


  1. Jay, thank you so much. I had a problem with remove user files of the deleted user, but your tutorial helped me.

    For all:

    If after deleting an user you still see it in a user list use this command:

    sudo rm -r /home/name of a user whose data should be delete.
