    You first slide the shelf part off, then the bracket is visible and you remove the screws holding it in place.

    empty the shelf, place both hands arround the front edge of the shelf and gently pull. It should come away showing the fixing inside.

    See if it will slide STRAIGHT up about 1/2 inch then pull off gently
    If it wont go up pull STRAIGHT out

    Maybe it has been painted over. Run a craft knife along wall edge.

    Some of the brackets required a small screw when you installed them. Look on the bottom of the shelf and you will see same colored stickers covering the holes. Remove those screws and it will slide off.

    Screws could be on the top next to the wall also. Who ever put the shelves up could have used glue also. No advice.
