ever want to really go crazy, combine this technique with the four key steps below:
1) Press Ctrl + A to highlight everything in your inbox.
2) Press Delete or Shift + Delete to remove everything from your list at once.
In order to get started, you will need to log into your Gmail account and click on the Settings gear icon. Once you are in the Settings menu, scroll down until you see the Filters and Blocked Addresses section and click on Create a new filter. In the next menu, you will need to enter in the search criteria that will be used to identify the emails that you want to delete.
For instance, if you only want to remove emails from one person or email address, then simply type their name or email address in the field labelled From.
If you have set up filters before, then your default criteria might already include some of these fields such as To and Subject. If not, then make sure to fill out all of these fields so that your filter can properly identify which emails should be deleted. If you want to remove emails from more than one person or email address, then separate each name or email address with a comma.
You can also use the asterisk (*) symbol to indicate wildcards for partial matches. After you have completed filling out the criteria for your filter, click Create Filter at the bottom of the screen.
Reordering on the main page
Most people’s inboxes are a mess, with hundreds or even thousands of unread emails. However, there is a way to quickly and easily get rid of all of those unread emails. Simply click on the inverted triangle next to the All tab on the main page, select All from the drop-down menu, and then click on the checkbox next to the search bar. This will select all of the unread emails in your inbox.
Next, press Shift+Delete on your keyboard (or right-click) and it will ask you what to do with these selected messages. Choose to Delete immediately if you’re sure you want them gone forever or Archive if you’d like them moved out of sight but still accessible. To be extra safe and avoid mistakenly deleting anything important, Archive first before deleting anything by mistake!
