1) Dump the private key of the account you want.
2) Create a new wallet and import that private key.
3) Forget about the first wallet.

UNLESS you have market orders .. (BIDs and AKSs or SHORTs) .. then you better keep your wallet file!!
or .. you cancel all orders .. and move ALL funds to yourself once .. so that they are regular transactions and not market transactions .. then you are good to go with Riverheads proposal!

That doesn't really delete the account, though. You just can't access it anymore.

Correct. So far there is no way to delete an account once created. I find this method useful though because the more accounts are in a wallet the worse performance gets.

Let's rephrase:

you cannot delete accounts that you have REGISTERED on the blockchain. they will always be known to the blockchain
accounts that are just local can be deleted by deleting the local wallet ...

I have a similar question. Is it possible to create a subaccount in a wallet that does not contain the "top-level" account? Could I create and register a subaccount and then move it using riverhead's step 1 and 2?

Cannot do it today, but I would like to give the ability to hide and/or group accounts.

Hu!?

AFAIK what svk asks for should work ...

1) go to your empty wallet ..
2) create you subaccount foo.bar
3) get the account pubkey for it
4) got to the wallet that contains the mother account
5) add a local contact for the subaccount with the corresponding pubkey/name .. foo.bar
6) register the local contact
7) done!

however .. you will not be able to "recreate" the subaccount's private key from the mother account's private key ..

TL;DR; .. it's 'messy' :)

I can confirm this works as outlined by Xeroc (tested for BTS), thanks!
