Sharepoint List, How can i remove an item from the list?

I'm new to the SharePoint fiasco, I see there is a list with 22 records I need to remove one of those. I have gone to site setting and locate the list. open the list and click on the tittle bar and see where Items and List heading shows at the top. Under Items I see the edit item and Delete Item but they are gray out. What do I need to do, go, click in order to delete one item of the list?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Are you an owner or contributer to the site? if so they may have broken the permissions at the list level, go into the list settings and check the permissions there if you have access.

Are you taking over the SharePoint environment from another individual?

I'm an owner of the list and yes I'm taking over from someone else. I think permissions are broken somewhere else =(

This may be a dumb response, but when you go to the list and see the items greyed out on the top have you clicked on the record in question that you want to delete?

It is not a dumb response, it is totally valid. I can't click or select anything hence the edit option is unavailable. I guess it has to do with the fact that the item on a list take you to another page. I don't know if this helps

Thank you,

If you click on the List Tab, do you get the option to do a quick edit on the list, The image below shows with the navigation when selecting a single list item. We will have to a look further at the list permissions.

Try to granting the account that you are currently logged in with either edit rights or owner directly to the list.

Look at the screenshot from 7:53,  the item tab needs to be highlighted so that you can edit or delete items. This shows the list tab as highlighted.

Maybe something, maybe not...

Ok, good that you are in the right place..

A few points -

Above you mention that the SharePoint group is part of the AD group. The way it works is that an AD group can be a member of a SharePoint group, but not the other way around. So make sure you are in the AD group. One way to check is to use the "Check Permission" icon, in the ribbon, shown in your screenshot from 08:02. You will be able to check exactly what permission you have on the item.

You could also test by granting your account explicit access. From the same place shown above, click on "Grant Permissions" and add yourself.

Another test, add an item, then see if you can delete. Often, a custom permission is used that allows one to add items but not delete items. Maybe that is in play here.

Good luck...

Good thought, but be careful. Please don't modify content type settings. That has nothing to do with deleting list items.

Go back to the Library Settings, this time open up the advanced setting.

Check the following - Item-Level Permissions for Create and Edit Access verify that it is set to Create and edit all items

Then scroll down and verify the at the quick edit is enabled.

@Tim Edwards on this post 2016-07-29 at 07:49:04   ID: 41734623  I don't have the allow modifications.
I have Allow attachment, Allow management of content types that's it

Walter CurtisSharePoint AEDCommented:
Don't do anything with content types please. That is something and nothing to do with permissions in this case.

I was able to add a new user to the list but once again I cant delete.

Walter CurtisSharePoint AEDCommented:
There could be item level permissions in use. As Tim mentioned one place to set that is in the advance settings for the list, although your ownership should override those settings. The other place is the item itself. The item(s) may have unique permissions that keep anyone from deleting them.

Go to the item and you should see a context menu for permissions.

Make sure you are logged in with the same account you checked the permissions for. Sounds weird, but if you are using pass through authentication, maybe your standard users account logged in automatically and you need to sign in to SharePoint using  your admin account.

Okay I think that I have found were the issue might might be...

Click on List and the Modify View:

Scroll down until you see Tabular View and make sure that All individual item checkboxes is selected

I unchecked it in one of my lists and I lost the control and acts exactly like yours.

You should still be able to mark an item directly (without the checkbox), which will activate the ribbon items. But give it a try, it might work! My fingers are crossed.

Good find!

Thank you,

I am only guessing that the previous admin, removed tabular and also hid the linked item so when click on any list item you would not get the prompt window.

I am just glad we were able to figure it out, it is not something that I have done before so it took a lot of brain searching to remember were some of these things are.

Have a great day and weekend
