How can i delete test sensor/device?



I don't want to see test sensor/device in main list, and want to delete it, if it's possible. At the moment, if i disable showing it in a map window, there's still an empty place of it's size, and other sensors are shifted

can you please be a bit more specific? You can delete sensors/devices (or groups) in PRTGs webinterface (Right-click on the object, select "Delete").

Best Regards.

Hi! After i installed new version (8.1.1) there was a sensor "test" of device "test". And i can't remove it, it says i should remove parent probe. Which i'd prefere not to do, becose i've filled it with bunch of devices already, and don't want to do that work again.

Is there some way to remove that first "test" device, and not touch anything else?

Are you trying to remove a probe device? That is not possible.
