How do I Delete Test Orders in Magento 1.6

So you have a Magento project to develop, you created a Magento theme, you placed initial products and categories and you also placed some test orders to see if Shipping and Payment methods work as expected. Now, everything seems to be working correctly and the client wishes to launch the site. When you enter the administration for the first time after the launch, you will see all your test orders there. You know those should be deleted. But how?


This is one of the biggest challenges I've run into with Magento so far. I couldn't find any really convienent way to delete the test orders. Quite a few Google searches later I found many many different ways to do this, but they all required running queries against the database in phpmyadmin. Since I'm new to Magento I didn't think this was a viable solution as I'm not familiar with the database structure, if it would leave orphan records or delete too much.


Finally I found this plugin that allows you to delete test orders within Magento click here to get yourself a copy. It's free.


Now I'm on version 1.6 and this plugin shows compatible with up to 1.5. After reading some comments and seeing that others were able to use it on 1.6 I decided to give it a try. I installed and it worked perfectly.
