Knowing this process can be key for many, considering that since July 2021 the unlimited storage of Google Photos has ended, Gmail users have been forced to share the 15 GB of storage with photos and videos that previously did not have within of these restrictions.

In addition, you must bear in mind that if your storage capacity runs out, not only will you not be able to upload files to Google Drive or share images in Google Photos, but you will stop receiving emails, so it is important that you keep your account free of elements unnecessary.

How to delete emails in bulk in Gmail

Step 1: choose a category

The simplest way is to choose the category where the emails you want to delete are located. It can be the inbox (Main) or the emails that are automatically classified in the Social or Promotions labels (or whatever you prefer).

Step 2: select visible emails

Then you must press the checkbox located between the search bar and the tabs, with which you will be able to select all the messages available on the page.

Step 3: select all messages

However, as this process only selects the 100 emails, if you have more emails that you want to delete, you must press the message that will tell you if you want to select all the preservations available in that particular category.

Step 4: delete the messages

When you’re done, hit the delete button, which is located on the main menu. Click on To accept, when Gmail asks if you want to move forward with the bulk delete process.

Delete emails from Gmail

If you have few emails, the process can be instantaneous. However, it shouldn’t take more than 30 seconds if you have close to 20,000, as was the example we have indicated.

Once Gmail has finished deleting the emails, a notification will appear stating that the messages were sent to the trash.

Step 5: empty the Trash

If you don’t want to wait 30 days for the system to delete them automatically, you can do it manually by going to the Trash folder and pressing the link Empty the trash now, which will be located in the central part of the screen.

Clever. You have already released a significant part of your Gmail storage quota. Remember that you can repeat this process as many times as necessary, according to the folders you want to empty.
