Edit Order and Delete Order Functionality in Magento 2

By default, Magento 2 allows you to edit order details in a very limited way. Basically, you can just edit the Address Info and mark orders as Cancelled. That's it.

First, you need to access the list of orders in the Admin Panel under the Sales - Orders tab. To overview order details before canceling it, just select an order from the list and click on it.

Next, click on the check-box next to the order, and choose the 'Cancel' option from the drop-down menu. Note that you can also cancel orders in bulk.

In Magento 2 you can edit only Address Information (shipping and billing data) without cancelling the order.

Note, if you make changes to the customer’s address, you'll have to specify the shipping method again. And if a customer used a credit card as a payment method, you'll have to re-enter all the data one more time.
