Step 2. From inside your site admin, navigate to the Appearance > Themes page and select a different theme to activate. Hover over the theme and click “Activate”.
(If you don’t have another theme to activate you can install one by clicking add new and installing the standard WordPress theme).

Step 4. After clicking on the Theme Details a popup of the themes details will show. In the bottom right corner of this popup click “Delete”.

(Please note that because your theme options are saved to the database and not in files, deleting the theme will not cause you to lose your theme settings)
