Deleting a group does not need much pain or mouse clicks and only right clicking and selecting Delete Group option are the only steps that are involved in the process. However before deleting any group you should make sure that no contacts are added in to it. If a group contains contacts it cannot be deleted until and unless all the contacts are removed from it.
