Removing Docker Containers and Images
# Removing Docker Containers and Images
There are times that you will want to delete an old image or container that you are no longer using. In Commandeer, we make it easy to do so. You can either right-click on the Image or Container in the side navigation, select it in the dashboard, or press the delete button on the detail page.
::: Note Docker Containers need to be stopped before they can be deleted. You can press the stop button to do this. :::
Below you can see an example of a Container called open_mysql_1. The delete button is in the top right corner of the page.
You can also do it from the right-click menu in the side navigation.
Pruning your old images and containers can save you a significant amount of storage space on your computer. We provide an easy interface to manage this.
