The simple way to remove a layer is to click to make it active and then click the small trash can button at the bottom of the palette. You can also choose Delete Layer from either the Layer menu or the Layers palette pop-up menu. When you do this, you'll see a warning dialog box asking whether it's really okay to delete the layer. If you Option-click (Mac) or Alt+click (Windows), you can skip the warning. (You can also skip the warning by dragging the layer to the palette's trash button.) Undo brings back the layer, if you have done nothing else in the meantime. If you have performed other steps, you need to use the History palette to return to a previous state.
