Hi Experts,

Thanks for reading. I'm completely new to PostgreSQL and need to drop some databases I've created, however, I cannot. I'm using Navicat and pgAdmin3 to try and both times I cannot. Each time I click the database it seems to establish a connection but I have to click it to get the delete right-click option. I cannot figure out for the life of me nor on Google how to delete them. How can I do this?

Thank you!
