How to remove user on Linux system -

User management is an important part of Linux administration. Sometimes you need to list the users on a system or disable a user account. Other times, you may need to delete a user account entirely, which is what we'll be covering in this guide.

We'll be covering the command line method as well as removing a user in GNOME and KDE.
