Hey I have created an associated token account, from my public key but accidentally sent some Sol to it. Is there a way to withdraw the sol from it? Will closing the account withdraw the sol from it? Thanks!

Yes, when closing an associated token account all SOL will be withdrawn to a destination account you specify yourself.

There is no way to decrease the SOL amount without closing the account.

  • to clarify, this works the same for all SPL Token Account accounts, regardless of ATA or auxiliary addressing
