The instructions from 2013 that say to go to the "Account Cancellation" section in in Preferences in Account Settings is no longer available, so what is the new cancellation process

Hi Corwin.
Click the "gear" icon on the top right of your screen.
Then select "account settings" then preferences.

In the "Account Cancellation" section, click Cancel this account. This option won't appear if your AdWords account is already canceled or if your user account doesn't have administrative access.

If you use post-pay, please see here

There is no Account Cancellation section under Preferences in Account
Settings. These instructions are from 2013 and no longer apply to the
account format currently.

Hi Corwin S,

I followed Dave's instructions and found the Account Cancellation just fine. It's toward the bottom of the page.
