In this article, we would like to show you how to remove existing HTML element using remove() method in JavaScript.

Quick solution:

// find element by id
var element = document.querySelector("#element-id");

//remove element
element.remove();

Note:

Some browsers may not support the remove() method. Go to this article to see alternative solution.

 

Practical example

In this example, we will remove child-2 element.

// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

<!doctype html>
<html>
  <body>
    <div>
      <p id="child-1">This is a paragraph 1.</p>
      <p id="child-2">This is a paragraph 2.</p>
    </div>
    <script>
      var element = document.querySelector("#child-2");
      element.remove();
    </script>
  </body>
</html>
