This tutorial will show you how to delete offline maps in Windows 11.

Whether you’re driving, walking, or taking the bus, Maps for Windows 11 gets you there. Get directions and choose from alternate routes, or plan a longer trip with multiple stops.

You can download maps, and use the Maps app to search for and get directions, even when you are offline.

By default, Windows will automatically update maps when plugged in and not on a metered connection.

If you no longer need an offline map, you can delete the offline map to free up hard drive space.

By the end of 2023, offline maps will no longer be available in the Maps app. After that date you will now be able to view offline maps in the app.
