Can someone please explain what causes some skins on the main extensions page to have an "uninstall" option, while others do not?  Out of about 8 skins that were installed, only one had the option to uninstall, even though 7 of them are not in use.  I want to get rid of the ones I am not using.

AfAIK legacy Skin packages don't have an uninstall Option, because DNN did not track the files to delete during install.
you may simply remove the Skin Folder in /Portals/_Default/Skins or /Portals/[PortalId]/Skins - same for Containers.

That's right for legacy skins, but I noticed the same, even with the skins that are delivered with DNN or installed as a DNN5 package.
I logged it in the issue tracker, but cannot find it any more.

I noticed the same also.  Many of these are not legacy, and they have no delete option.  In fact, the only one that did seemed to be a skin from the 5.x site.  So something seems wrong.

Also, I have found that if the folder is just removed, the skin name still remains under the Extensions -> Skins section.  How do you remove it from there after deleting?
