Delete multiple emails in Gmail (Several messages at the same time)

The previous tutorial explained how to delete an email message in Gmail; this is fine when you don't have too many emails to delete at any given point, but can get tedious. In this tutorial, we will show you how to delete multiple emails from your inbox (in other words, deleting several email messages at the same time).

Follow these steps to delete more than one email at a time:

This is all it takes to delete several emails at once while in your Gmail account, inside a web browser. Tip: if you are checking your Gmail messages from an email program, you can "control-select" the emails to delete: hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard, and while keeping it held down, click on each email: release the Ctrl key when done, and hit the Delete key.
