How to force delete a storage account from the Storage Explorer

Jul 23, 2015 at 10:52 AM
A storage account that I had loaded into the storage explorer does not exist anymore in Azure Storage. Hence, I'd like to remove it from the list of available storage accounts in the application. However, click on it on the drop-down menu at the top left of the screen returns an error, and when clicking the "Remove" button, the wrong storage account is selected for deletion.

The Storage Explorer must keep an internal reference to all configured storage account, and I am looking for a way to forcefully remove them from the application. Thanks for any pointers.

I have also seen this issue and the only way I could remove the dud account was to

Select (all) then click delete.
Then re-add wanted items.

Not very useful if you have a lot of storage accounts, but might help some people.
