Outlook 2010 categories master list

I am a home office user of Outlook 2010. I have old, unused categories still visible in the master list and cannot discover how to permanently delete them. I have searched EE and found reference to Q_20177201.html but I do not know to what that is referring, but evidently it would contain my answer. I searched EE for that reference, without success.

Bottom line:  how do I delete unused categories?

See http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/add-or-delete-a-category-HP005243290.aspx

Note the explanation that, just because you've deleted the category from the Master List, doesn't make the category not-associated with items you've assigned to it. In other words, you're going to need to do a search by that category name, and then disassociate each item with the category you no longer want to use. You could highlight them all and then disassociate them that way.

thanks very much for the quick response. It's so evident now, but certainly hasn't been as I struggle with it!
