Currently there is no way to delete records of old apps using the Google Play site.

However, you can remove apps from your "My Apps" list. (*only with version 3.9 or higher of the Google Play Store app)

You can see which version of the Google Play app you are using by:
1. Open the Google Play Store app
2. Select Menu
3. Settings.
4. See which version you are running listed under "About".

To remove apps from My Apps:
1. Open the Google Play Store app.
2. Select My Apps > All.
3. Touch the gray "X" on the app you want to remove > Select OK to confirm.
**Tip: To remove multiple apps from the list, you can do so by touching and holding an app, then selecting more apps in the list.**

Note: You will only see the gray X for apps that are not currently installed on that device. If you remove an app from your My Apps list, it will uninstall the app from any other devices associated with your Google Play account.

If you would like to add an item again that you have removed from My Apps, you must download the item again on Google Play.
If you removed a bought app, you do not need to buy the app again. Simply, visit the app's details page on Google Play and install it again.

I would prefer an option to archive old apps that you no longer use but still have it associated with your account. I don't want to have the data removed entirely from my account if I decide I may use it again one day.

I have been using android since long and have seen almost all the updates. I have used almost all of its versions. The NOUGHAT of the android is the best of the lot. It has come up with the feature of deleting the apps from the play store. You can easily uninstall the app but now these apps are kept in a new folder as the apps which has been downloaded but not installed. You can contact Google Play Store Customer Service for any kind of issues related to your apps.

I think the way to do that is on the home screen where the app is, hover your finger over it and drag it to the trash compartment. That's it, it's easy.
