Update: Consider also this Delete comment utility
Most Blogger bloggers will already know this, but someone asked, and I thought I might as well answer it in a post. Further, I followed the usual way, and failed. So I think it would be good to make a post, plus description of what to do if that failed.
To delete a comment, first make sure you are signed into your Blogger account. Then go to that post and in that comment you want to delete, at the bottom you will see a trashcan icon. Just click on the icon and confirm that you want the icon to be deleted and it will be done.
Now, that was what I did when I wanted to delete a comment, but for some reason or other, I could not see the trashcan icon. I tried a few times in a few browsers, and still could not see the icon. I tried to first help myself as described in my post How to contact Blogger support (click "Back" button to get back to this page) and found myself being taken in a merry-go-round that eventually lead to a suggestion form to improve Blogger Help, but with a message that I will not get a reply. I then tried 2 methods to contact Blogger support (described in the post above) and not sure which one got me a quite quick response from Blogger support:
"Thanks for writing in. If you're unable to see the trash icons for comments on the post page, you can go to the posts' comment page instead. There, you should be able to find the trash icons. I apologize for the inconvenience."
I (already logged into Blogger) click the month in which the post appeared in the Archives in the sidebar and was taken to a page with all the posts of that month including the post in which I want a comment deleted. I then click on "Comments" at the bottom of the post and got to the post's comment page. There, I finally saw the trashcan icon, click on it, confirmed, and the comment was deleted.
Footnote. The reason why I needed to delete that comment was the person posted a long unbroken line (unclickable link) which caused the sidebar in that individual post page to slide to the bottom of the page in IE. I didn't realise this for a long time as I normally used FireFox (close new window to come back to this page). My recommendation to every blogger is to frequently check your blog in IE for problems like this if you normally use other browsers for your surfing.
