How to delete a TFS task

Sometimes we want to delete task that we have added to TFS
But there is a no way to delete using a UI.

we have to use command promt

cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE or
cd  C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE
then type follwing command

witadmin.exe destroywi /Collection:http:\\Optimus:8080\tfs\IPG /id:9
Collection == Team Project collection url
Id == ID that is generated by TFS

Simple as a UI click :)

Additional Details
Most of the people are not getting this witadmin.exe

So i have uploaded it.   Download WITADMIN.EXE

Why TFS portal webparts throwing an error - [Solution]

When we have configured sharepoint webportal for TFS, sometimes is throws an error when displaying "Project Dashboard" & "My Dashboard", all webparts displaying as missing components.

This is because, we have lost all webparts (basically dll's that renders webparts).
What we have to do is,
(1) Central administration --> Operations --> Solution management --> tswawebpartcollection.wsp --> DEPLOY

(2) Central administration --> Application Management --> Manage Web Application Features --> Visual Studio Team Foundation Server Configuration --> ACTIVATE

Now refresh your page :)
