How to delete Custom Tab from released/managed package in salesforce?

I want to delete Custom Tab from a released/managed package in salesforce developer edition. Please help on this.

Thanks in advance.

I think you can't delete the tabs in managed package.

You can delete a tab from a managed package - they added it one or two releases back. You have to request the delete permission from SF for your managed package. Here is the catch: The tab gets orphaned in orgs that you push out updates to or if they uninstall your package - same is true of removing fields.

Once they enable this for you you can go to the package or dev org and on the object there is a delete button that you will then find on the tab, field etc.
