You can remove tags from an instance. This topic describes how to remove tags from a virtual private cloud (VPC). You can remove tags from a route table or a vSwitch in a similar way.

Background information

Before you remove tags, take note of the following limits:
  • You can remove up to 20 tags at a time.
  • If a tag is added to more than one instance and you remove the tag from one instance, the tag is still added to the other instances.


  1. Log on to the VPC console.
  2. In the top navigation bar, select the region of the VPC.
  3. On the VPCs page, find the VPC from which you want to remove tags, move the pointer over The Tag icon in the Tags column, and then click Edit in the pop-up message.
  4. In the Configure Tags dialog box, find the tags that you want to delete and click The Delete icon on the right side.
  5. Click OK.
